Hair Club For Men

Hair Club For Men

A Poem by James
"

Sorry

"
I was sitting at home late one night
sipping cheap whisky and trying not to cry
Cause when you're alone your thoughts get dim
your mind goes to places it never should have been.
Now we all get older and that's just a fact
but age ain't the problem we can agree on that
It's the side effects that cause us grief 
Our pants get tight and we got yellow teeth.
But it's the other things that cause us pain
receding hairlines and gray on our face.
A bigger shirt might hide a few pounds
But that first gray hair, it's a bad as it sounds.
Hair club for men
Hair club for men
Got a little bit of gray on your chin
Just get a little dab and paint it in
Hair club for men
Hair club for men
We all get a little bit thinner on top
Hair club for men will darken that spot 
Hair club for men.
I hit up the bars and a few dating sites 
and I finally found the girl that just my type
She was a beautiful, dark haired, curvy Cuban
Last time I got laid was at the family reunion
I bought her a few drinks to get her loose
a fruity concoction with rum and juice
I picked a little spot where the light was low
Because we all look better in candle light glow.
It's was going pretty good until the drinks got there
But I took off my hat and she started to stare.
A mirror on the wall reflected the light
and the top of my head was glowing bright.

A little bit of spray'll take that bald spot a way
It's Hair Club For Men
Hair Club For Men
If you're scared of the light because your head is a sight
Get Hair Club For Men.
I picked up a paper and looked at the personal section
God knows I couldn't handle more rejection.
I saw an ad that was perfect for me
posted by a lady who couldn't really see.
It said tall and busty, forty-four Ds
Perfect for a man who's only five-foot-three.
So I dialed the number and she answered on the spot
With a date for tonight, who'd ever thought.
I got to the table and waited a while
till she walked through the door wearing a big 'ol smile
She was a lanky-legged beauty, that was a fact
But I couldn't get past her thin mustache.

Got a little hair above your lip
Just get a little wax, it comes on a strip

I try to angle the mirror
so I just never see
what the 'H' has happened
up top back of me

Thanks. I used to write serious poetry, maybe one day I will again.
This is banging on all cylinders, my friend! Wowza & what a ride! I love rhyme & rhythm, plus I love doing re-writes of songs . . . this one had the right beat for one of those songs . . . was it Monster Mash (tipped off by line 1)? That only lasted for a bit, then it got a life all its own. Many writers post lyrics but I have never felt the musicality like this one throws off! You can't read this without having a song running in the background. But then your storyline is way off the charts, being both realistic & far-fetched, riding that line so nicely. Love this one & glad to see something new here from you! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks. I wasn't thinking about Monster Mash at all. I really didn't plan any of this out. I'm glad.. read more
Loved the humour in this write. We all have our hang ups as we get older. Many men curse the fact that they are follicly challenged. ( not sure I've spelt that right, but you get my gist) Us women have a ting about the extra pounds on our rump:) Plus the wrinkles and all the other bits. Better to accept and age gracefully together don't ya think?

I do think so. I don't think I have to worry about going bald, but the gray is clearly on the way.
This is funny...............

Thanks. I was just trying to have a little fun.
this was a blast to read...yes, we get so paranoid about showing our age, instead of growing old gracefully.
I am resigned to the silver...
thanks for the smile, James.

I'm getting there. My beard has more gray than black
:) this was a fun read. Can relate to getting older for sure and isn't it funny how as we age men lose and women gain (hair)
