Deodorant’s a wondrous thing;
It squelches odors that would cling
And keeps us Soft & Dri and Sure,
So Suave we all have more allure.

We still might sweat to some Degree – 
A Ban is not a guarantee,
But here’s a Secret I can share – 
Non-users, man, we know you’re there!

    haha, the thing about deodorants, they don't stop wetness for some of us, only odor. And the anti perspirants have dangerous chemicals. WE just can't win!!

    This... was... excellent! Ha, I loved all the hidden brand names sprinkled through out. My brother has a curse and no matter to what extent he layers on the deodorant, the smell of a hard days work never completely goes away! What's your next writing venture gonna be about, baldness... shampoo? LOL! I never know what to expect when I read something by you... keep up the unpredictability!
