Ode to the beard


The feral beard grows,
obtaining abundant nutrients
from the corpo, with a dollop
of melanin sprinkled here and there,
on the visage of many a homem.


Hear that there is a Barberaria
at an intersection in Barão Geraldo
charging as high as 100 Reais,
for a dapper look to impress
the lads and damsels of Cambui.


The feral beard thus obtains nirvana,
elevated and transported to a higher plane.
No longer having the beard would make
one a hominid or for that matter feral,
for it has become a status symbol with the likes of
George Clooney and David Beckham.


Long live the beard.
Lord save the beard.
For so long as men may breathe and rivers do flow,
Shall the feral beard grow thither,
with neither restraint nor wither.
