Prince William was so sick of being told He’s receding and is now going bald So he called in the royal hairdresser To see if he could ease the heir pressure He gave him a brand new hairstyle This ‘buzzcut’ would be so worthwhile His hairdresser is very highbrow But his fees have raised an eyebrow William’s head looks like its been shaved Oh how the press stories have raved £180 pounds is what we’ve been told It’s so costly to look like you’re bald! The cost Prince William has now denied It wouldn’t be the first time the press have lied! One day William will be ‘heir apparent’ And cutting costs will be more transparent When William’s crowned then we could sing With altered words to God shave the king! Based on a story in the press over the cost of Prince William’s news haircut 01/20/18

Clever lady ... side-splitting poem. Super funny w/cool topical news cream to slather on the reader's dome. Rocket fuel, take-me-to-the-moon loon poetry. Kudos on POTD. Love and more love always.

Hi Jan, I really enjoyed this fun write. I don't watch the news much so I didn't know about Prince William's new haircut. I searched the internet and I saw that SNL joined in the fuss over his new haircut as well. Congratulations on getting the poem of day. It was well deserved:-) Alexis

JAN!!! JAN!!!!! JAN!!!!! The future King has no hair.....and only one so prone to poking fun could so poetically led us to laugh at it. That last couplet is priceless(or at least worth 180 pounds. Congrats on POTD(putting' on the dog) while mocking the monarchy...

I see what you did there with the heir's hair. Very clever word play! I feel for him as I'm in the same boat. Mine cost $16, which I thought was too much. Reconsidering that though!!...80)
