The Old Hat,
A Poem About Rediscovery

Whatever happened
To that hat
So long ago?
It sure looked good
In the mirror on my head.
It gave shade to my eyes,
Though not enough
To be useful.
It went missing years ago
In one of my sojourns;
When I was another me.
If I wore it today
It would be
Old and beaten-
Just like me.
I was so proud of it
Today it might be in some
Second-hand store.
The money
Could have been better used.
I wonder what happened
To that old hat
What I really I wish
Is to have back
The fifty bucks
That I paid for it.
