For all the Bearded Men out there!

Some five o'clock shadowsSome with a stubble,Some clean shaven brats,Some rock it inBandholz rubble, A goatee stands outBalbo dazzles,Imperial comesBack in townSideburns are the newRustling razzles, May it be in circleOr a flourishing fullNo matter the beard typeChivalry willContinue to rule! - Swati Prakash
