Question: Are chin hairs the absolute, unequivocal sign of female aging!?
Ode to Age and Chin Hairs

beautiful skin
chin tight and
hairless, what glee!

Estrogen leaves
chin growth appears
no panic, you
can handle that!.

Tweezers in hand
inches from mirror
deftly pull them out
one by one!.

Ten years later
hairs still arrive
but now solution
proves much harder!.

Eyesight is blurry
arthritic hand can't grip
bad knees prevent hop
on counter for closer view!.

Embrace your youth
those who read these words
with no clue as to what I say,
a chin hair WILL find you one day!

Gee, ma -with me it was just the opposite!. I had a chin full of hair when I was 21, but now sport only a moustache!
It's different for males!.

There's always electrolysis, so chin hair isn't the absolute, unequivocal sign of aging even for women!.

Okay, men, laugh while you can!.
My fondest hope is that someday the hair on your head will be replaced by an over-abundance of hair in your nose and ears!!

Electric razors for women do the trick!.
The poem was exactly my life up til now?

can be as simple as a hormone
