Two Grey Hairs Of Wisdom

I have just two grey hairs in my mustache
That keep growing back,under my nose
Why there's just two
I haven't a clue
Soon to be joined by many more,I suppose

They say grey hair grows with wisdom
But with just two hairs under my nose?
No matter what I do
They keep growing through
The beginning of wisdom for me,I suppose

Two grey hairs I've plucked and cut
From my mustache under my nose
For now there's just two
Soon to be joined by quite a few
A lesson learned in wisdom for me,I suppose

    Count yourself lucky with just two of 'em buggers. I'm one of the unfortunate women with lots of facial hair and these days they come out grey. Oh, the shame of it!! lol. A delightful and entertaining read, Dan :)

    Just a few at 23, now at 70 all is gray. At least it's still mostly all there. May your wisdom increase each day, no matter what the number of gray. Thanks for sharing AJ

    OH MY God! Only two - that's odd. I hope you don't lose them, that's the begining of more to come. Did you ever read my poem - When We Get Old. You made me laugh with this one. Have a great day. Lucilla

    Plucking them breeds more not wisdom.

    hmmm, if plucking doesn't work, try that nair cream. AT least it is not painful!! This is cute. I remember those days I found only a few white hairs in my hair. Today, there are almost as many of them as there are my dark roots. I wish it were either all one way or the other, I hate that salt and pepper thing!!! I think I will be coloring my hair forevermore.
