The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 170

I think its time I got a new hat
Friends give hints like ‘I’m gonna burn that’
So maybe its time for me to be bold
Marvin the Martian is looking a bit old
But what do I want in its stead
What would look best on my head
A bowler is too formal, not like me
A cap lacks class and looks chavy
A beany just looks like you’re wearing a sock
A pink frilly hat may be a shock

Top hats are classy but expensive to get
And pilots hats haven’t found their place yet
A flat cap is from an old fashion
A beret needs a bit more passion
A hard hat is designed for rubble
A leather cap is just asking for trouble
The Pope's hat’s cool, but where’d you buy those
They come along with the job I suppose

I could always have not hat
But where’s the fun in that

And a hat keeps the sun out your face
You can remove it to be polite
And it’s handy for judging headroom space
Which is useful when you’re my height

So I think I’ll stick to the one I’ve got
A slave to appearance I guess I’m not

Great poem, it has everything in it, A thought provoking poem.10++++ Dare I look beneath the shade, Into where the worlds are made; Where the suns and stars are wrought? Shall I meet another Thought?

It has been a real pleasure pleasure to read this poem like a lyrical expression of one's feelings and thoughts about the mysteries of the outer world, the sky and the universe. The beauty of the language and its sweet words can be witnessed in the following lines: Thought of Thoughts, and Light of Lights, Breath of Breaths, and Night of Nights? '
