The Beard and the Hair

by Michael Brookes
Originally published by on 20/02/2017

For over a decade the hair ruled the head it sprouted from. Until, without warning different growth appeared on the man’s chin. Prideful of its already flowing locks, the hair mocked the newcomer, boasting of its length, and that the chin fluff could never match its virility.

The beard tried its best, but never matched the hair’s ever increasing length, but it remained determined. The hair’s boasting continued for many more years, until the moment when it lost its crown as follicles fell out. Its demise progressed until the man was completely bald, and still the beard continued to grow.
