Shave at Floyd's

A Shave at Floyd’s
After trying and failing to grow a beard I would want to see cover my face Decided easier to go to a barber to obtain clean shaven look to put in place
Went to Floyd's in Costa Mesa and was told it would be a near hour long wait
Fortunately Harp's is next door with great food and Guinness to hunger and thirst sate
Went back and had Jerry as my luck of the barber draw
Hit jackpot and was with the shave totally awed
First the electric clippers to shorten the stubble
Then hot aromatic towel to soften the rubble
Then a razor with a blade so very sharp
Wielded so smoothly no nicks and cuts no need to summon Angels playing harps
About as close and smooth as close and smooth could possibly be
Another hot towel and from a shaggy appearance set free
Maybe imagination as the hairs hit the floor
Some of my years disappeared out the door
Well worth the 32 dollars and tip
Nothing bets a shave by a barber with a steady hand and grip
