Untamed hair and shaggy beard,
it’s like the sixties came back and bit you
which is fine if you’re looking for a quick fix
or a few trips
but this is the twenty-first and we’re coming in
The dark ages seemed much lighter.
Cut and run?
well, I would do,
that’d be really dumb,
it’s not safe anymore
I’ll stay locked in behind this door
and pretend my name is
