Ode to a Shaved Armpit

The long weeks pass and my heart fills up with joy
as I remember what this deadline brings to me
I lift my arm up to the sky; my razor I deploy
No longer will they see my dreadlock'd pit and flee!
 'Tis been months; I'm tired and burned
I endure yet I cannot ignore this blight
One armpit smooth, the other one hirsute
Throughout this madness I have yearned
for my poor axilla to be spared this plight
Time to give this nappy hair the boot!


  1. you are, as always, BRILLIANT
    xxoo, dad

  2. How many armpits have been so glorified? Raze away!
