REDHEAD!

How many hopeful gentlemen have gone to Redhead Beach,
Hoping to meet a girl with auburn hair?
And how many men have drifted home despondent and downcast
Because they didn't find a red-head there?
Only three percent of humanity is blessed with russet locks,
And most of them are braw redheaded Celts,
With a sprinkling of freckles, an aversion to the sun,
And a good old haggis tucked beneath their belts!
Most have fiery tempers and are passionate as well;
One could almost say that they are quite mercurial.
This description suits them whatever sex they be,
Whether the name is Malcolm or it's Muriel!
Some famous names will come to mind; Ginger Rogers, Danny Kaye,
Greer Garson, Rita Hayworth, Lucille Ball,
Woody Allen, Spencer Tracey, Nicole Kidman, Clara Bow......
They were famous and, indeed, were red-heads all.
But see the sign above which has a girl with auburn hair
Coaxing young men to dally in the sun!
I'd say that it's false advertising! All the men will find
Is a pinkish cliff! And Redheads? Not a one!

There's a Red-head here:

What a funny name for a beach. I've got auburn locks myself, but keeping them requires a deep and committed relationship with my stylist LOL.

An interesting rime about redheads - I only remember seeing the stars mentioned in monochrome photos, so
to learn that they were all red heads was surprising!
Great photo of the beach!

Great redhead rhyming scheme. Enjoyed your poem. I've been meaning to swing by but got blogged down. I'm easily distracted and lose focus quicker than a Google search.

What a fun post! That's a great sign and I love your poem, Rinkly.

I was born with red hair, now only a few highlights remain when the sun is shining directly over my head. The gray is coming in nicely though.
