“Miss”

I am old but still have hair,

troubles – wow – I’d like to share.

My mate she does not like it long,

but I don’t care – is that so wrong?

I’ve cut it short at her request,

the look it gives I do detest.

Nice for me it still grows back,

but when it does I take more flack.

It’s time to cut your hair this week,

the barber, though, I will not seek.

Rants from her I will dismiss,

’til strangers speak to me as  “Miss.”
