Ted seeks to spruce up shabby fur.
It needs rejuvenation.
He is scrutinising bottles
With brow-furrowed concentration.
Of all shampoos, which shall he choose?
They number twenty-four.
Some replenish what’s been lost
And promise Full Restore.
There’s Keratin, Filloxane,
(Conditioner he’ll have to leave
Until another day),
Hair Loss, Protect, Dry, Nutri-Gloss,
Fine, Greasy, Smooth-Intense,
Dull, Damaged, Long, Flat, Coconut.
Another makes hair dense.
Should he go for Summer Saviour
Or maybe Oily Roots?
Decision’s made: it’s Thinning,
Cost? £2.35 from Boots.
