Mad Hair Day

Skyline of New York City behind the statue of liberty. In the arms of the statue of liberty is a boy with blonde hair wearing a red top.

In New York, lived a boy with fair,

And truly mind-boggling hair.

The locals said, “This may just be,

The strangest hair you’ll ever see.”

That when the boy was ten years old,

From the sky—with no forewarning—,

On a quiet Sunday morning,

Came a hundred thousand volt,

—Quite terrifying—lightning bolt.

A bolt of lightning coming down from a grey cloud an hitting the blonde boy. He jerks in the air.

It hit him square upon the head,

And then, I’m told, he promptly said,

“Watch out, Mama, I think my hair, 

Is going to sprout. Stand back! Beware!”

She looked at him, then made a yelp,

And called her husband. “Quick, come help!”

The boy’s fair hair let off a glow,

And then, with haste, began to grow.

The blonde boy shrugging his shoulders looking confused. His hair is glowing a large bright yellow glow.

In a flash it passed his shoulder,

Making him look ten years older.
