A Hairy Situation

by Alex Steelsmith

“Police were called about strands of hair hanging out of a woman’s trunk,
assuming it was a body. Turns out, it was her wig…”

Worriedly, hurriedly,
dutiful officers
might pull you over for
wigs on display.

Try not to dangle them
tucking them in is a
small price toupee.
