The Hat

The Hat

A Poem by john l smith
"

The solution

"


 

Henrietta Hippopotamus bought a new hat

But when she tried to wear it

It slipped this way and that

Cuz her head was just too fat

 

She went to the store manager

With her hat complaint

Asking, “Are they going to make it fit?”

He answered, “Oh no they aint!”

 

Her mouth opened wide as could

And swallowed that poor man down

Then she threw the hat away

And bought a nice new gown

Me oh my, what a messed up guy.
Perhaps if she weren't so fat
the gown would've fit, better than the hat.
