Haircut in a Mirror: Comedy Poetry …(I hope)

Today’s Folding Mirror poem is an attempt at comedy from Marc Latham which first appeared in The Pages.

Poem Explanation

The poem was created to fit into the Another Haircut? theme of a short book the House of Meredith published.

It’s just a bit of fun, and I hope you find it such.

Poem Structure

The words per lines mirror each other either side of the folding middle, with a words per line structure beginning and ending with the outer lines of:
8-7-5-6-4-8 (14) 8-4-6-5-7-8

The punctuation also mirrors pretty well, but not exactly.

The Poem

Haircut in a Mirror?

My hair’s too short, don’t get no shape;
need some wax, so people can tell
me I look real swell.
My hair’s gotten out of control,
can’t control the mass,
In my eyes and down to my ass.

Gotta get me a haircut, nice and trim, so people don’t think I’m dim

Now my hair’s too short to get shape,
can’t get no style,
my hair needs gel to excel.
hair is growing quickly now,
soon it’ll be, like two feet past
My neck and down, to eyes and ass.
