The Euphoric Bombadier

Hairdressing mistakes
are more about look than suitability.
The captured have become
increasingly less adventurous,
walks shortened to the obligatory.
Our gestures have ceased
to contain them. The simplest
central emphasis has us grabbing
our heads with our hands,
searching for a wave or a swirl.
Mistakes were made, hats employed
then discarded like transgressive brilliantine.
Hair Command banned any comb,
brush that is not essential to our work.
Hierarchy will be restored instinctively.
