The True Hat

Meet Mr. Roger pictured above, kicking back in a chair. Mr. Roger is having trouble finding his “true hat”.  A true hat is a hat that he could sleep in and feel cozy all night. A hat that will make him feel complete. A hat that’s even better than a slice of buttered up toast with triple cream brie on the side for breakfast.

Anyway here’s a hat ballad for you:

Where are you my hat?
I’d like to have a chat,
And give you a pat.

I’d sooner find a cat,
Or some dirty old mat,
With a hole and a rat.

I’d just fall flat,
Or get into a spat,
With a burly muskrat.

I’d search and scour,
And feel so sour,
At every hour.

The days will pass,
Staring through glass,
As I let out some gas,
And imagine catching a bass.

There is no hope for me,
Despite my passionate plea,
And a cup of black tea.

I feel like I’m stuck at sea,
With an annoying flea,
On a raft filled with debris,
Wishing I was a pine tree.

The search goes on,
Starting from dawn,
Until I stumble thereupon,
My true hat woebegone.

I enjoy taking snapshots of nature, wildlife, scenic views or other things I find along the way. I enjoy taking bird photos the most. This is a blog with my photos and commentary. You may also find funky recipes, sketchy poems, random quotes or something off topic.
