Inappropriate Poetic Subjects #9 – Herbert Spencer’s Sideburns

Herbert Spencer, he was born
On a windy April morn;
Four years later, young Burnside
Came to be, his parents pride.

Burnside wore the first sideburns
But the photographs suggest
That while each man took his turns
Spencer’s sideburns were the best.

But then I’ll let YOU decide
Did Spencer burn out Burnside?

General Burnside.
General Burnside.
