Chest Hairs



I talk to my chest hairs every day Hi there, you seem well endowed You're coming along quite nicely now There's four of you, you must be proud Not long ago, you were only two But as one thing leads to another Passions explode in your frail bodies And with hairy love you're smothered At first signs of life, you waved with joy As two tiny sprouts first appeared A loving impression of a hairy family My tears ran down to my beard A shining example of a loving community My beard started out like you guys But that was quite a long time ago Now a gathering of three hundred and five The true measure of your value to humans And the bliss your existence inspires Unknown to many, the reason you exist To absorb our sweat when we perspire © Jack Ellison 2012

    My Dad just shaved off the rest of his beard... Decimated by Chemo... But as it left we heard it say...'We'll be back!'... Like my Dad... It never gives up and never surrenders... LOL... They both have a powerful amount of determination... When they get going you either stand back or jump out of their way... Full steam ahead! Choo! Choo!

    Funny one Jack, my chest as well is very sparse, great for swimming fast, no need to shave.
