an ode to no shave november

No Shave November in Haikus
It's said that haikus are a form of poetry that express natural beauty. I thought there was no better way to show my feelings for No Shave November in an eloquent, poetic way. For those of you who aren't familiar with this art form, the first and last lines are 5 syllables and the middle line is 7 syllables. So here it goes: 
A Gentle Reminder Boys with beards are gross  Shave it off right now or I'll Punch you in the face

Last Monday night, the Ellen DeGeneres show took over the 600th block of State Street in Madison, where they held a costume contest. Ellen tweeted earlier that day, inviting people to be dress up in their craziest costumes and be ready to go by 4 p.m. Hold the phone. First off, I love Ellen; she's hilarious. Second off, I love going to stuff like that because it gives me inherent bragging rights. What did you do today? Class? Psh, I was on the Ellen Show. I'm so there. 
Buuuuut I was drowning in midterms. As in floundering at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean amid a herd of angry great white sharks. Basically, I couldn't go because I had to study. 
So I packed up my backpack, coffee in hand, and walked to the library. Too bad the taping just so happened to be conveniently on the way. WAT UP ELLEN?! 

It was crazy tho…
