Bald Is Beautiful



It used to be a true sign of virility To possess a thick head of hair Today men walk around proudly Quite bald with a confident air I've seen more hair on a billiard ball Than on some macho men of today What do the ladies think of all this? Do they think it's sexy that way? Remember the afros back in the 60s? Such a laughable sign of the times Sure glad we got over that silly craze And all those ban-the-bomb signs Maybe we'll come back to our senses Perhaps compromise just a little The ladies will shave off all their hair That'll give us men a big giggle What about preservation of the species Maybe it'll slow us macho men down Before the world's overrun with people In a sea of humanity we'll drown! © Jack Ellison 2013

    My dad started balding when he was eighteen and I have his same hairline! But I don't mind, I don't cover it up I embrace my coming baldness. I love the wind on my scalp when I walk and the way it Velcro's to beanie caps :) Too witty for your own good methinks. Sad to say that some girls ARE actually starting to get guy haircuts... not so attractive in my book!

    It's the luck of the draw! My dad had a full head of hair when he passed away from cancer at 67! Girls getting guy haircuts... what is this world coming to! :( Long flowing locks still turn my crank!

    Now if you've still got a full head of hair like this old geezer at 77... you'll have to keep fighting 'em off... gets quite tiring at times! LOL

    Jack! Hair is the first thing I notice on a man! I'm really into hair and take good care of mine. I like the straight floppy kind on men, but I must admit...I love patting my hubby's bald spot as well and giving it a kiss! ;) So...bald by choice...NO!!!! But with age...OK...we can live with that! Great write! As ALWAYS!

    I would definitely go for "hairy" rather than "hairless". We have a saying that gives the meaning: A woman is crowned by her hair.. and men only get more majestic! .............. It is always enjoyable to read your poems, Sir!

    You should see if I wear dark clothing... covered in bunches of white stuff that used to be attached to my head! BUMMER! Still got lots left though! Exactly how many individual hairs does the average person have? Must be BILLIONS! xox
