Poem: Naked on the Stairs

I’m sitting on the stairs


Tweezers in my hand

Waiting to make her laugh –

I knew she’d understand.

What surprise

In her eyes!

Not even underwear!

But she’s completely unaware

She doesn’t come

Which isn’t fun

And now my bum

Is numb.


You see

As I grow older

My hairs get far bolder

Since with advancing years

They sprout right out my ears!!!


You thought this poem would be scarier?

There is nothing scarier

Than an

Old man

Getting hairier!
