Then, I Saw It All Was, Clearly, A Mess -

Then, I Saw It All Was, Clearly, A Mess -

A Poem by Elephants & Coyotes
"

Clue 2/3 for "Nails Hairier than Hair."

"
Sit still, now, chil’,
While I untangle this mess -
You ain’t goin’ swimmin’
‘til it’s all in braids,

The mo’ naps you got,
The mo’ hair you lose,
I’m ti’ed of strugglin’
With this pick
And flat comb,

"

‘cause yo hair is too thick,
I’m at the enda mah wick,

And, mah grays are doin’
Anything -

But, fadin’.
