Better Grooming

In So Many Words: The Barber’s Pole

In So Many Words: The Barber's Pole Featured
“Barbicide is blue. Blood is red. This paper is white. Please cut my head.”

Grooming. In Verse.

We pledge allegiance to chops, buzzes, fades, and trims.

Please tip your barber well.
Those scissors he’s holding are
awfully sharp.

“Looks like a really
big candy cane,” the boy said.
“Not worth it, son…” – Dad

Barbicide is blue.
Blood is red. This paper is white.
Please cut my head.

Years ago, barbers
were dentists and surgeons, too.
A real one-stop shop.

William Marvy of
Minnesota sells five hundred
of these a year. 

See, I told you that
not getting a haircut was
Un-American!
