Quincain: Triad (after Crapsey)

Three things
That can turn your
Hair to white overnight:
Hair dye . . . painting the ceiling . . . and
fear.

I started to argue with this one, started to say you forgot kids - but fear took care of that argument!

I would say that these work overnight - kids are quicker!

I submitted it to Amaze, the cinquain journal, and it's been accepted. The editor felt "fear" in the last line was only one syllable, so I replaced it with "Erin", no, "children"!
