By James Carey
There once was a man whose name is too weird and a razor blade never touched a hair on his beard. Well his beard got so long that eventually…
It wrapped seven times around every green tree
It sprawled off of cliffs and danced in the breeze
It covered tall mountains and clogged all the streams
It even crossed oceans and all seven seas
It travelled through islands and wrapped around volcanos
It flew up into the clouds and drooped across rainbows
It slithered through swamps and dark, gloomy bogs
It crept over mushrooms and underneath frogs
It zigzagged through cities and stretched across streets
And in the country some used it to hang their sheets!
You may be wondering “Where does the beard end?” It goes all the way back to where it began

He turned all the hair from his beard into wigs and donated them all to hair-needing pigs- Total nr. of readings: 1,091 Copyright © The author  All Rights Reserved. This story may not be reproduced without the express written permission of the author except for personal use.
