I stuck with a moustache because...you know Magnum P.I.
-- Steven Adams
Moustache doesn't make man
and nor does an absence of it
so to win yourself admiring fan
you've got to have the true grit.
Huge moustache or thin
bushy one or hardly seen
with a goatee or smooth chin
none of that will make you win.
It may even look funny on some faces
when it somehow happens not to suit
with hairs not growing at some places
though, funny or not, it may look cute.
Those baldies often try to compensate
seeing above lip what they miss on top
that doesn't make their manliness great
even if they tried to make it big like mop.
It's charisma and strong vibes
not that advertised hairy face
and that is all that describes
some manly man of any race.
There are those who try to hide
their true nature soft and tame
masking their vulnerable side
out of pride, or out of shame.
Somewhere religious rules may dictate
distinction from the "weaker" gender
while secretly evoking their hate
for not being nice and tender.
But then again, moustache could mean
merely a decoration on man's face
although it should never be seen
as replacement for manliness.
