Saw Sue in the Papers




Opening and unfolding the Gazette.

There appeared Sue, in before and after pose.

Someone had cut her locks with a Gillette.

Why cut all her blond locks, I muse?


For the mental health cause "Headway":

Sue had sacrificed her fair locks.

To raise funds for mental health; she did it her way!!

Whilst struggling with mental ill health - backing

Sue did not lack.


Sue's sponsors are many and her courage doubtless.

The funds she has raised are impressive.

Thankful are her sponsors and Headway; I guess.

Also the news coverage quite extensive.


Cheerfully smiles Sue; in before and after take.

Creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Confident of the success she did make.

Earning the respect of her peers.

Haha!! But will Sue, sue when they use the money for something other than what they told her? 


Reality sucks...but it is our life.

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
