Hats

look at her hat

it seems to be

throwing itself

all over the lane

my hat

on the  other hand

is behaving nicely

thank you

perched just so

nice and neat and trim

just a little wear at the banding

but neatly mended

thank you again

it is of a hue

of black or blue

can’t tell anymore

without strong light

my hat speaks primly

of please and thank you’s

my hat shouts

well, nothing

a strong gust

will not dislodge it

but if you could

peep under that

well secured

neatly groomed

tight and tidy

brim

you might find

a bit of sequin

a lick of flame

maybe even

a touch of porn

but of course

no one

would ever

know

Julie at The Buffaloe Pen has written a wonderful whimsical piece about her hat. Her work has inspired me to write a little something about my own.  Thank you Julie, that was just plain fun!

  1. Three cheers for your hat!! Jorc, this is awesome! I love it. The lines flow so well, and it’s just downright fun to read.

    I love the twist in the end, too. Your hat looks so nice and prim…but if we look under that well groomed brim, we might find all sorts of things…haha!

    I just LOVE:

    a bit of sequin

    a lick of flame

    maybe even

    a touch of porn

    but of course

    no one

    would ever

    know.

    That lick of flame is especially awesome. Thanks so much for letting me know you wrote it. I can tell you had as much fun with it as I did. I love that sense of joy. Big applause!

    • Your wonderful poem and your readers comments were great inspiration. My hat has a few of the things tucked safely inside that yours seems to have in abundance. My hat is jealous! haha!! It was so fun to write!
