I’m raising money for Movember this year by writing “moems” (poems about moustaches). I’ll do you one if you send me a photo. All for the good of the cause (donations are always welcome!). My mospace: http://uk.movember.com/mospace/4045929
A rusty fuzz covers your face
A bristling coat, a prickling embrace.
Now Movember is here, it’s time to get rid,
And get that face fluff off your head.
Josh Jeavons at Jack The Clipper
So lather up, rub the foam in good,
Or go to the barber (like gentlemen should).
And little by little, the fur comes away
Till your naked face is in full display.
A scratch and a wipe and a scrape of the blade,
The foam is all gone, slap on the aftershave.
An “ooh” and an “argh” as the astringent stings,
A pat down and a rub; it’s the smooth face of kings.
As the days go by, your top lip may itch,
But don’t worry, it’s your mo and it’ll be a titch!
And as your mo grows, more people will ask
“What’s that on your face, is it coffee from your flask?”
And you can reply, with your chest puffed out,
“No, it’s not my drink, I’m no incompetent lout!
Rather, it’s my mo, he’ll be around for Movember,
Whilst I’m busy raising moolah for a cause you’ll remember.
“This thing on my face is not a slug or a rat,
It’s my very own billboard, how’s about that?
I’m raising money for men’s health and my mo is my tool,
I’m Ghandi, Dali and Selleck – but a zillion times cool.
“I’m doing it for Movember, a worthy cause I say,
My moustache may look silly, but by golly, it will pay.
Plus it’s getting chilly and my face is getting cold,
Luckily, my mo keeps me warm even if it does make me look old.”
So gather, MoBros and MoSisters, unite in hairy bliss,
We’ll spread the word and won’t mind if we get refused a kiss.
