The bearded lady

The bearded lady
In a circus sideshow
She said it was real
This beard she’d grow

A big thick beard
Or just a goatee
Maybe a moustache
This isn’t for me

I don’t want to kiss
A face full of hair
I can’t find his lips
It’s quite unfair

No excess hair
Will be on my face
Eyebrows are waxed
This hair they’ll erase

Every few days
I must maintain
And pluck some hair
It’s really a pain

Five o'clock shadow
I’d rather not kiss
A clean shaven face
Now hardly exists

Dead or alive

You’re at her bedside
Many hours each day
You quit your job
So you can stay

She’s a real fighter
And has been for years
Her treatment is painful
She’s shed a few tears

A beautiful girl
Who lost her hair
Without her wig
People will stare

A high school student
Her future was bright
She isn’t willing
To give up the fight

Returning to school
It’s too soon to tell
Now she’s too sick
But time will tell

Wanting to go
To her senior prom
If she’s not asked
She’ll go with her mom

Football games
And her first kiss
For the time being
She’ll have to miss

She wasn’t abducted
They know she’s here
On the side of the road
Her remains won’t appear

A child abducted
You may never see
Once she’s kidnapped
She’s unable to flee

She’s misses her family
She’s very scared
A child who’s sick
This can’t be compared

A daughter who’s ill
May often survive
A daughter who’s missing
Was not found alive

Are you two faced?

Most people have two faces
But only one you’ll see
The face that’s always pleasant
And treats you cordially

Don’t trust them with a secret
When they’re behind your back
They like to talk about you
They’re talking you can't track

Most people have two faces
Though you might never know
Unless you overhear them
Or someone tells you so
