Needs Must

As an Eskimo
Is to his igloo,
So a bald man
Is to his wig glue.

About the Poem

An aphorism is a short saying which cleverly encapsulates an essential truth. An anaphorism is its distant cousin, a silly saying which becomes sillier the more you think about it. Aphorisms have been around for ages, but anaphorisms are purely my own invention!
