I think the best part is that the poem is almost entirely what would be on the back of a shampoo bottle, but the title changes everything. The second you associate the two ideas together, it changes the entire meaning.

absolute genius. this is the kind of thing my creative writing professor talks about in class.

When you're a poet who grasps onto the smallest of details whenever you can get them, you begin to look in obvious places others overlook.

Congrats on the DD! It is much deserved.

I have to admit, my favorite parts were "Keep out of reach of children." and "If symptoms persist, seek medical advice," XD

Shampoo bottles. What a unique place to find inspiration. More people should listen to such wise counsel.

You can find inspiration in anything, as long as you're trying very hard not to be inspired by it. Trust me, I spent days looking at shampoo labels in the shower whilst trying to fix the latest poem in my head.

Hmm, I'll keep that in mind. I'm not surprised though, admittedly the first time I read it I was like, "It looks like the back of a shampoo bottle, why is this a DD?" It was only after I read through it again that I started to understand. It has kind of hidden clevernes to it that makes it all the more amusing. :D

<3 I think all world problems would be solved if people just followed their shampoo instructions and applied them to other things in life.

Not everything obviously, e.g. food. if you 'do not swallow' I'm pretty sure you'd starve to death in a matter of days.
