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 Dan Kearley:2-15-13

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.
