Gone is my fascination for the fringe,
The very thought of it makes me cringe,
So bad was my recent tryst with it,
That I am still reeling under its ill effect,

Next time I am in the salon I’ll think twice,
Before I give in to my impulsive vice,

So far I’ve been lucky I think,
To have tried varied things without a blink,

Now do I have to reconcile to the tried and tested?
Should I rein my spirit and toe the lines of what’s already been invested?
