I wrote a rhyme about naff hair,
Only fit for deletion, so I did, so there!
Full of babble, and waffle and gestural descriptions
Of lovesick teenagers, blood-slurping vampires, and pineapple encoded binary encryptions
It made no sense, so after all that
I decided the rhyme, like the hair, was also quite naff.

I wrote a naff rhyme about naff hair
Although now that naff rhyme is no longer there
A naff hole appeared, needing  urgently filling,
So this fills that space… naff yet…

…with a split end like this oddly fulfilling

‘Naff’ is a British term meaning ‘not awfully good’. This rhyme, and its immediate preceding one (/deleted) are entirely based on fiction, any similarities between real folk and the words are purely coincidental and not intended in any way whatsoever. And anyway, the emphasis is on ‘naff’, not hair. Just saying…
