Carbon Aftershave

I try to smell my best,
And leave a trial of scent,
I smell better then the rest,
When I wear Carbon.

Only worn on special days,
On others its just lynx,
I leave my room a misty haze,
When I wear Carbon.

It's my signature smell,
People recognise before they see,
It clings to my lapel,
When I wear Carbon.

I wear more then I should,
It chokes me sometimes,
I feel so good,
When I wear Carbon

    The first time I read 'Carbon' I didn't like it. Now I have read four times and I love it. And I don't know why.

    If you want a big effect
    your levels increase, we detect
    monoxide makes the masses cough
    dioxide takes your ice cap off!
    Love your form! Have you been studying the Burma-shave signs? -chuck
