The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 230 - Poem by Flying Lemming

An easy task I thought it was, a simple thing to do
I wandered off to the shops to get me some shampoo
Rows and rows of plastic bottles, of all shapes and sizes
Some to enhance what you have, and others as disguises
Pro-V Radiant Colour, Anti-Breakage, Time Renewal
Various promises and claims that were not true at all
Enhanced Layer shampoo and an Ice Shine built within
And gentle action Aloe Vera added for your skin
Shampoo for smooth and sleek hair and some for full and thick
Whether it’s blond or red or brown there’s something to do the trick
Some that’s meant to repair and protect from damage every day
Highlighting colour expression to hide any trace of grey
All kinds of scents from almond to apple and cranberry
Coconut, lavender, watermint, mango, honey and strawberry
And every one has a conditioner with which it is meant to go
Or even has the ‘2 in 1’ if you have no time to slow
And now Aromatherapy and UV Filters in the stuff
Plus a range of medicated to get rid of dandruff
I wandered off more confused, knocked right off my tracks
Think I’ll just shave it all off and get a jar of wax

    So good, so true... and now so shiny? ? ? ? ? ? ? No good though... now you will have to wonder about the assortment of hats on offer. I'm confused enough when asked what sort of coffee I want. (Report) Reply
