Bartering Barber Bob

by Leann DS

Barber Bob built business
By basic bartering.
Barbecue buys blowouts;
Books buy bantering.

Butterflies by buzzcuts;
Baseballs buy bald-fades;
Bourbon begets bouncy bangs;
Bologna bestows braids.

Bringing bricks, bushy beards;
Bobs by Bob, bananas;
But breezy bob-adours
Besta brought bandannas.

Because Bob's business barters,
Bring bounty but bewarned,
Beware bringing Boston baked beans...
Bob's bum becomes bullhorned.

Dedicated to my dad, Bob the Barber. He really does barter, but not to this extent. He also takes cash. :-)
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
