On Long Hair in Movies, Particularly Arwen’s in "The Fellowship of the Rings"

When hair is bound up
In braid or smooth bun
It tends to stay up
Which isn’t much fun.

But when hair flies loose
One just as conveniently
Might hunt wild goose
As comb the orientally

Confused knotty tangle
Which always ensues.
That’s why camera angles
On picturesque views

Which show streaming hair
Behind a girl riding
Are deeply unfair
To hair-doers residing.
