Weird Beard

I’ve been letting the old beard grow
It’s been coming in so weird though
Soft darkness of earlier days
Now replaced by burlier grays

My face is now a patchwork quilt
Some places thick and over-built
While other spaces are quite bare
And seemingly bereft of hair

My wife dislikes my new old look
Refusing now to clean or cook
But that’s not all, just as I’d feared:
No sex until I shave my beard


  1. That is unfair of her...we bearded dudes have to stick together, so just be celibate--that will show her. (Easy for me to say!)


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
