When COVID-19 has you confined in the house
You look for ways to annoy your spouse

“A haircut is something you desperately need—
Your head looks like a patch of weeds!”

I do not want you to cut my hair
I want it to grow from here to there

You may think you know what to do
Clippers in hand moving up and through

With curls on my neck, I look disheveled
Unlike F. Scott Fitzgerald

If you dare to touch a single lock
I’ll have no choice but to punch your clock

I want to look like Fabio
Cool and handsome with a glow

So stop your pestering, if you please
Before all you have left of me is memories.
