“Chinny Chin Chin”

“Whiskas” ©️C.P. Hickey 2019

“Chinny Chin Chin”

You have many whiskers.

Much more than I’d expect.

More than…

Dear old Dad.

Enough, to need Gillette.

But, they suit you.

Yes, they do.

I know that no one asked.

It’s just when we embraced,

My lower lip was scratched.

Collateral damage,

Has caused my present state.

All in all, a slight abrasion.

Not enough, to tank the date.

I look forward to our next meeting.

A lasting fall from grace.

If we both don’t end up shaving,

We’ve a chance to save some face.
