Hats (poem)

Updated on July 26, 2015

How many hats do you wear every day

It is a wonder that you are this way

There’s the chef and the ref and your usual job

There’s the police and the priest and your hood for the mob

-

All the hats that you were every day

You are a marvel nothing less to say

There’s the maid teacher’s aid

And the doctor and nurse

The accountant attendant

And the person on first

The chauffeur the gofer

The artist rehearsed

-

Think about the hats you wear each day

How do you keep insanity at bay

You’re the plumber a drummer

A waiter the skater

The judge the lawyer and jury

Clothes maker and mender and even a bar tender

The stylist the wildest the keeper of the smile list

A hunter a punter cheerleader with a gun sir

The love the hope and the fury

-

With all the hats that you wear every day

You are a wonder and a fanciful display

      My hat! You've made a beauty this time. I find that the way to cope with all the different hats is to take one off when it's time to put on the next! More comfortable that way!

      Liked this one because I can relate to this being a mother, working part time, and trying to fit in doing what I love, write!
