Bad Hair Day

Bad Hair Day by Linda Knaus

I looked in the mirror
with shock and with dread
to discover two antlers
had sprung from my head.

The kids in my class
were complaining all day
they could not see the board
with my horns in the way.

The teacher was cross.
He asked, “What’s your excuse?”
I said, “Maybe I used
just a bit too much mousse.”
