Januhairy

The girls have been told,
be brave and be bold,
its really not very scary.

Be not afraid,
put down that twin blade -
this month is called January.

Exile epilation,
vive le vegetation,
embrace your legs and your pits.

Lets all raise millions -
banish brazilians,
and let nature reclaim all your bits!
