Age-Erasing Strategy .... [personal Grooming; Very Short; Silly; Sort Of True; Personal] - Poem by Bri Edwards

I usually don't cut my long nostril hairs,
nor that hair which protrudes..from my ears,
but I DO shave the bristles from my nose's tip;
I believe that shaves from my life.....ten years!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

PH member Francis Lynch, in his poem 'Happy Birthday... Right', mentioned various little body parts which are sometimes related to getting older. his poem inspired this poem, which is true, except that my hair cutting isn't what chops ten years off of my appearance. it's my 'clean living' and friendships on PH. believe that? ? bri ;)

    They do say that appearance can make you look older or younger depending on how you have it. Personally I think that it's only true in some instances. Clean living can certainly help you look younger, but will not take years off your body clock. Sorry to upset you. (Report) Reply
