Between Me And My Mirror - Poem by Reason A. Poteet

quatrain, ABAB

Mirror, mirror, the answer please
sound it with your softest voice.
I deal, dear Face, with expertise.
Ask on, I fear you'll not rejoice.

Mirror, are there gray hairs dancing
in among my blackest blacks?
Face, I see your foes advancing.
They're waving little silver plaques

in bold print, revealing loudly:
Gray hairs never, ever quit.
Gray is in, wear it proudly.
Lie not, dye not, give up, submit.

Mirror, mirror, the answer please
What are my best alternatives?
Face it, gray is not some disease
for treatment nor preventatives.

Glaring roots and ghastly color
will leave you appalled with regret
Let gray come, life could be duller
thank God, you're not bald, not yet.

    well, your recent entry into Brian Johnston's Challenge poem-writing contest, which he sponsors on his PH page, has brought you to my attention! and, lo and behold (whatever that means) i have found, with my first try, a poem here with no comment yet. i shall have to correct that situation! i shall send this to MyPoemList, and if you aren't careful, i will vote for your poem about words and imagination. (see my comment on BJ's contest page if you will.)

    my favorite stanza:

    in bold print, revealing loudly:
    Gray hairs never, ever quit.
    Gray is in, wear it proudly.
    Lie not, dye not, give up, submit.

    i, too, submit! thanks for sharing, AND for inspiring the poet in me! bri :)


    Gray Is In To Stay, Maybe

    Do not struggle, R.A.Poteet.
    With gray... you can't compete.
    Curl it, comb it, tease it too,
    but fighting gray.... will not do!

    Be happy or at least content
    that all your hair to hell ain't went.
    Yes, the gray is here for now to stay,
    but baldness may strike you any day!
