Purple streaks or maybe blue,
Time to choose alternate hue,
Raven black, mahogany,
Different colour, other me,
Could go blonde or platinum,
Rinse with pink or palish plum,
Auburn locks or pillar red,
Umpteen browns for mousy heads,
Silver, gold, such vast array,
Colour schemes to cover grey,
Numbered shades to join the dots,
Funny smells they mix in pots,
Could give in and let them grow,
Stubborn threads that want to show,
Older face with aging hair,
Either that or spread on Nair.
Ladies’ choice, much more than jig,
Could shave it off and buy a wig.
Sod that lark, for dress pale blue,
Think I’ll opt for four slash two.
Or maybe green.
I like green.
Looks good on plants.
