Michael Edwards










The hair on his head is slowly receding

Oh the trials of spatial positioning

Perhaps it’s a case of facial distancing.

    I wish the hair on my head was receding, I am definitely coming very close to my 1970s hair style!


    • Michael Edwards

      My wife cuts mine - she hates doing it and is no hairdresser but the end result is pretty good.

      Good write and pic M.
      Does Miss Berles wear her hair in a bun?!


      ANGELA HERE - BUENAS DIAS TIO MIKE ! Love the foto of your Hair from up above - please keep out of El Sol ! Men are suffereing follically (and its not funny !) Growing beards and hair like Street Buskers ! Where their WIFE has had a go it really shows ! Zilch back & sides & Fuzzy Wuzzy on TOP ! This is another of the 50 ways in which Girls Score ! As our Hair gets longer Men have more to Play with and we save Money on Extensions. Brian is learning more about us Females now He is married (His Lady Friends say He is Bewitched - Bohered & Bewildered - aren*t ALL MEN ?). I noticed in the box marked REINCARNATION (on our will) hes crossed out TIGER and replaced it with HUMAN (FEMALE). Love the POME excellent choice of Words for a Tuesday !

      Blessings & Joy to You & Yours
      Love Angela & Brian & Smokey !

        I just liked the play on 'social distancing' - thankfully I have a full head of hair and Jeanne makes a good job of cutting it

        Andy's comment goes for me as well. Great write and art work Michael.

        I now have a full head of skin. But the choices of off the shelf polishes have brought a new enthusiasm into my life.
        And hats, now a necessity in colder times.... i have hats for every mood.

        • Michael Edwards

          Apparently WD40 mixed with bees wax works well - what type of hat do you wear when writing poetry. Cheers dusk.

          what else could it be...

          I am feeling a bit sheepish myself and thinking of changing my name to Sean ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Michael Edwards

            Well it could be something worse:

            Has he a temperature? Could he be sickening?
            If itโ€™s a virus I hope itโ€™s not catching.

            And your surname to 'Short'.

            Appreciate your visit - thanks Neville

            • Neville

              You got me ๐Ÿ™‚ big

              After reading how you have so accurately describes me, I guess I'll have to go into 'lock-down', all because of facial distancing. HA!

            • The Uneducated O.A.P

              I'm with dusk, a head of skin
              Mine has moved down, around my chin.

              Nice one, Bill

              Hi Michael,

              Great write and lovely picture accompanying your poem

              Social distancing I certainly had an interesting experience when I went into the EE mobile store in Wembley to get my phone updated. The assistants now wear space age caps when they serve you

              Keep writing and safe during these challenging times.
