…is how it’s known

A hairpiece that is now outgrown

And has chosen to migrate,

To road, to fence, to garden gate.

It’s what’s known as ‘bang on trend’,

To find one lurking round the bend,

Beware extensions! You might find,

They have left you far behind,

And chosen for themselves instead,

A thoroughfare as their next head…

Oh, beware the Tumbleweave,

It’s likely to just up and leave,

And, when you very least expect it,

Jump out on you quite unsuspected! 

Lately I have been alarmed

To think that someone has been harmed,

Because I’ve seen with my own eyes

That Tumbleweave now multiplies!
