Thank You to My Eyebrows

Thank You to My Eyebrows

When a droplet of sweat gets stuck,
Woven into those hairy things
After trickling down my forehead,
I’m thankful I have eyebrows.

Each bushel of hair allows
The collection of sweat instead
Of coating eyeballs with sweat stings.
The eyebrowless are out of luck.

  1. Ahh not so, Mr. Bonjour Poet. I’m old enough to remember in the 80s Olivia NJ and J Travolta wearing pastel-colored sweat sponge headbands ABOVE their eyebrows, thus making eyebrows obsolete. We could all shave our eyebrows, affix a stretchy band on our forehead, and have sting-free eyes as we work-out to Grease music. Pearl

  2. Hey Andy! Being a mostly non-sweaty type (family trait,) I’ve never really appreciated my eyebrows.

    But I LOVE this piece of yours. Funny! Long may your brows serve and protect you!
