Ode to the Half Mustache Neoprene Face Mask
I was thinking today as I knocked back some beers,
That I’ve now had my mustache for thirty-two years!
I grew it in college my diary says,
And the last time I shaved it Dick Nixon was Prez!
It just didn’t look right when my face was all bare,
I felt almost naked, I needed some hair.
My upper lip is hidden, is that so unreal?
I can’t see my ass either, so what’s the big deal?
Yet I feel that I’ve deprived my lip of some fun,
It’s never been tanned by the California sun.
Nor felt a sea breeze coming off the Pacific,
But it’s been in some places that were just plain terrific.
I know that you’re thinking and I’m afraid that you’re wrong,
I’m keeping the mustache that I’ve had for so long.
It tickles my nose as a mustache will do, And someday if you’re lucky it may tickle yours too.
