Literary Issue: Ode to My Beard

by Brandon Burt

Dame Fashion decreed that a fellow’s chin
Must be plucked and shaved and buzzed,
For there is nothing better than
A face devoid of fuzz.

But I prefer a face replete
With whiskers and vibrissae,
And yet I keep them trimmed and neat,
For I am still a sissy.
