Comb Over

Z Z Top and Cousin It took the right approach
     Dark sun glasses and beards detract from scraggly hair
Next time my motley hairdo meets with reproach
     Combing forward I’ll consider, sparing the Nair

*For Rick's "Bad Hair Day" contest

    ZZ are a brilliant Southern Rocking Boogie band. It's ironic that the drummer is called Frank Beard. Good luck in the contest Carolyn....:)
