PRIDE AND HONESTY

A newly graduate hairdresser
Is too proud of his degree
He claims he can do better
Than any age old barber in his place.

He opened a hair saloon
Will full flair and pomposity
Right beside the old establishment
Of the old hair cutter south of the city.

To prove how proud he is
He puts a sign that boldly reads
“We give five dollars haircut
coupled with an excellent massage.”

Not to be outdone, but his pride badly hurt
The Old Master Barber put up his own sign
“We fix five dollars haircut
And aching muscles from excellent massage”

“I never knew how proud I would feel. Just standing in the rain.. These three words mean everything to me. And I’d sing it again and again.” – Amy Mc Donald
