Four Letter Word

What really matters
as the days tick by
speeding up
like each one is in a race
against another
What color of hair you had
Now that it’s gray
should you dye it
Gray is a pretty
absence of color
black tinted with
white
the presence of all colors
So maybe at the first sign of one
gray hair
it’s time to quit
expecting someone to hire
someone other than a redhead
with big
breasts
Maybe it was time to quit
long before
it ever got started
Working that is
at a four letter word kind of
job
What isn’t a waste
as the days tick by
speeding up
like each one is in a race
against another
Let’s be honest
What really matters
What color of hair you had?
