Hair

Untamed unruly 
Insubordinate strands coiled into a restrictive pose
Chemical warfare and arson to my scalp to straighten you out
For a while you complied but you always get tangled up in a mess
Arrested for disorderly conduct
Failing to yield to a comb
Robbing me of my sanity
This delinquency I can’t tolerate
So I had to lock you up

    Why not! Locks can be beautiful! Love the passion of this verse! Cynthia

    This is funny, fortunate for me my hair is co-operative.
