My Man Is So Smooth

And it isn't just his shiny eyes and smile

I love a smooth shiny bald head

and I have my own sleeping in my bed.

I thought at one point, I may be crazy.

This couldn’t be the only reason, what a daisy.

Walking up to strangers, wanting to have a feel.

I didn’t but I wanted to! I thought I would heal.

But now, I know, it was prepping for a hubby with no hair.

Someone knew that my other two had their fair share

of hair and I needed this to be ready for this affair.

I didn’t expect marriage, I just wanted my own

bald head. However, could I have blown

it away? I couldn’t and he is the best thing for me.

He and his bald head that I matched for a time, you see

cancer will do that with chemotherapy.

Was that what I was getting ready for?

After all these years, it is almost twenty-four.

I guess I will keep him as he is so smooth,

and he sure does know how to soothe!
