[in response to a friend's having proposed a law that all men be required to "sport facial hair"]

The problem here, alack, is this word, “sport”. Some human males don’t “sport” their facial hair (or whatsoever else they deign to wear).

Some men’s beards fairly rampage and cavort upon their cheek, like Huns in search of Thrace; others, far less gregarious, present as whisker-weeds through cracks in the cement, or strands like seaweed hung about the face, or yet as English gardens, years unpruned.

Rather than sport, some lollygag, coquet, trifle, misspend, or fritter beards away with which they’ve been by nature’s charms festooned.

The proposed bill is brash and highfalutin; but face it, dear... we can’t all be Rasputin.
