On A Dare

As if on a dare
he’ll tend to his hair

going to great legnths

with vanity and care.

The few strands left

take on a flair

for the severe combover

covering each ear.

Never would he have guessed

as he climbed up Air Force One steps

that all the hairspray

applied earlier that day

would in a huff and puff

all blow away.

As a swift gust arose

the whole back

of his bare scalp

was suddenly exposed.

At the top landing

poor potus arrived

fragile ego

barely survived.

As per his M.O.

We’ve all come to know

Must hold a parade
To compensate for

his embarrassing 

combover charade
