funny hair.

What is up with your funny hair,
Why does it go here and there?

It should stay in one place, like everybody’s does.

Why? Just because.

my hair goes everywhere and I like it! but in reference to an artist, i get it. i guess it just depends on how you interpret the poem.

I'm not going to lie. I didn't entirely get this poem.

Well, I'm using hair as a metaphor for artist in general. I feel as if people tell artists that they should be normal - and they don't even know why. They just feel everyone should be normal, plain. Thanks for the comment!
