In dejection, Jack tried prostitution,
and grew a moustache of disillusion.
Sometimes a relationship just can't be saved,
But a moustache can always be Burma-shaved!

I second Ellemeno's praise,
of TOoP's verse on the shave.
It was filled with panache,
Like the post on Jack's moustache.

Q. In the trailer, Ennis at the end,
said words I didn't comprehend...
What words of love did he say there?

A. (Oh, one more time...): "Jack, I swear..."

This one turned out sad for some reason...

Thwarted lives and mute desire
Embers of love's raging fire
Winds on Brokeback Mountain fanned it
They can't fix it, gotta stand it

Yes, but it is very majestic. It's my favorite Burma Shave poem so far this year.

Aw, thanks toycoon, you're a sweetie... these little poems are turning out to be like some sort of Rorshach indicator or mood ring or something!

On SNL, Jake wore a dress
His singing caused me some distress.
To be "Dreamgirl", Jake was Brave--
His armpits needed Burma-Shave!

           Faye said little Bobby looked like LD
          Lureen was skeptical as she should be.
          If he looked like that ugly old man
          Jack would give his face a complete ban
          he smiled a lot, and was cuter than he
          Burma Shave

          They bought her formula one hundred and twenty
          Jack went and got them, a formula plenty
          It would save Lureens girlish figure
          To bottle feed the baby was not as much rigour
          It wasnt as cheap though it cost many centey

Burma Shave,  by Janice

       I remember the signs as we drove hwy 66
       We never knew if they were for schooling hicks

        We loved seeing them pass on by
         As we  were traveling fast on the fly

        We liked them better than most of the billboard pics

          Jack missed Ennis he could hardly stand it.
          His face was so sad, no words could mend it
          Ennis only looked sideways as he mused
          Knew that his loved one felt completely used
          His chance was lost to give him his gambit
