I Made a Hat

July
23

I made a hat from fur and felt,
a feather, and a leather belt.
I topped it with a pretty bow
and lots of ribbons, just for show.
I held it up, admiring it,
then tried it on. It wouldn’t fit!
I pushed and pulled with all my might,
the front, the back, the left, the right.
And yet, no matter how I tried
it wouldn’t fit. I nearly cried!
I yanked it off and yelped because
I saw then what the problem was.
I’m such a dolt, I had to frown.
I’d made the darned thing upside down!
