Man... I don't look forward to that. I like my hair, and I hope I don't have to cut it just because I get some job that requires me to look "professional." Took me ages to get my hair just how I like it and I'm not giving it up without a fight.
Yeah I sympathize, if this really did happen. Like you said, all part of being an adult - gotta be dressed up real nice for the game.
And I have to say, you wrote it quite well. Made me uncomfortable, 'cause it's something I worry about on my own time, but hey - that's what good poetry does, it digs down and sticks to your insides. This one's all over me.
"Faith" means the will to avoid knowing what is true.
