Ode to a Goatee

We had good times together, from the beginning in Richmond to the crazy class in FL. Then as time went on you really grew on me, and I became quite attached to you. You complemented my glasses well and further enhanced my "beatnik" image. At National Convention you almost became a personality yourself, setting off my "curmudgeon" performance and giving us the resemblance to that head Kirstin brought. You looked really cool while we were chillin' at the beach and went very well with my Tux at the premiere. But as the days until August drew ever smaller we knew it couldn't last forever, the day would come when the sacrifice must be made. Dress code at ORU didn't have the same feelings toward you that I did and it demanded our separation. When that fateful moment came, I knew it wouldn't be the same. My face will be smooth as I rebulid my groove. Goodbye my goatee, it was fun for a time, you know I will miss you as I try to rhyme.

I hope I wasn't the only one who really liked it. (honestly I think everyone secretly liked it or was jealous that you could grow one and they couldn't) ;-)
