We were sitting in a restaurant having enjoyed a marvellous meal I caught sight of a man sitting near us His hair was bizarre, no way was it real As we’d never seen a bouffant so big Hubby declared that it must be a wig I said it looks like a ferret that’s dead When suddenly the ‘ferret’ slipped off his head He desperately tried to catch his falling hair And his frantic hands flew up into the air Alas it landed slap bang in his soup He fished it out, covered in gloop He nonchelantly placed it back on his head I turned to hubby, and then I said 'It was very wrong of us to stare but it wasn’t a ferret... it was really a hare!' A lot of poetic licence but based on seeing a man with the most bizarre ‘rug’ on his head 11/8/18

I can't believe how loudly I laughed at this one!! Do guys still wear wigs, these days... thought we'd all just resigned ourselves to be follicly-challenged!! ;) Regards, John.

G'day Jan … so it was a hair in his soup. Pretty common I expect. I suppose he had something to suck on for a nightcap - thanks for the giggle Jan - Lindsay

I get a lot of inspiration from people watching and having a vivid imagination certainly helps:-) Hugs Jan xx

LOL, Jan! That’s what us poets do! Uncomfortable staring, relishing the thought of a wig taking a dunk, pulling apart the froth of his wig...lol!

The only truth in the tale is we saw a man with the most horribly obvious toupee - the rest is pure poetic licence!:-) hugs jan xx
