Cousin It

Out of my ears and out from my nose
Where it’ll end only heaven knows
Growing odd hair is really a farce
Fetch me a mirror so I can check on my back.

Perhaps I should shave the bits I can reach
Oh do stop growing I ask and beseech
As I pull and snip and eventually pluck
Oh I give up, I don’t give a damn.

I’ll just watch it grow from my head to the floor
I won’t have the need for a coat any more
I’ll follow the lead of hirsute Cousin Itt
[And now some more growing from there!!!] – OH POO.

(I definitely don’t like the juxtaposition of those two phrases. Lo,TG Ed)

    At last! A photo of you not wearing a silly false beard or a cardboard box on your head. Why you bother with that false beard is beyond me….

    I was rather fond of the cardboard box. I miss it quite a bit, actually…

    I see that Vivienne Westwood last week at Paris Fashion Week had her girly models wearing moustaches

    That would save some time in later life if it became popular a popular trend!!

    Waxing could take on a completely different meaning couldn’t it …….

    There was a young lady named Buck
    Who had the most terrible luck.
    She went out in a punt,
    Fell out of the front,
    And was bit on the leg by a duck.

    Just found myself thinking of that somehow…

    Strange how things float into the mind [many tee hees and a ha ha as well – excellent]
