Away goes the filth,

Down the drain of ignorance,

The beard trimmed and cut,

Shaving cream & soap,

Off of my philosophy rinsed…


Listening to the Dead,

Before going to bed,

Not tonight a pot head,

Some call me Zed…


Miss my beard,

Cooler now that I’m sheered,

Will re-grow it this fall,

When winter winds do from a distance, call…

There once was a fellow named Ed,
Who shaved his beard in his bed.
He grew all prickly,
And almost sickly,
Until he threw his sheets in the shed.

Such is life, my friend. It's been a while since I had no facial hair at all (six years, to be more precise). ☻ Love and peace,

Reviewed by Jane Noponen Perinacci
I'm sure your beard will grow back just as lovely as it was!

Love ya!
