Shaving Safely

This is a little nonsense poem about the perils of shaving and dangers you may face.


I try and shave most of the time

Because if i don't i look like a slob

But what most people don't realise

Is that it can be a dangerous job.      


It might take about ten minutes

Maybe about quarter of an hour

And a lot of times i will shave

When i'm having a shower.


The one thing i have to watch

When i have the razor in my grip

Is that my hands are not to soapy

Then it could go and slip


I think you get the picture

Without me describing any more

If this was to happen

I could be feeling very sore.


Luckily nothing bad has happened

It usually goes without a hitch

So thankfully my voice

Hasn't changed to a very high pitch.


So i'll still do this dangerous work

yes i'll try and be brave

because when i pick up my razor

It could be a close shave.

Fab :)

You know, if you're worried, you could just use an electric shaver? There are some really good ones on the market ;)
