Hat Trick

Fav Toppers
By GC SMITH

I got me a Harley hat
a gimmee cap with a logo
that says:
"RIDE LIKE THE WIND"
but the embroidery
ain't so good
it looks like:
RIDE LIKE THE WINO

The hat's rolled brim is all frayed
that makes it special
you'd have to pay extra
to get a hat like that
but I done it myself
through years of the wearing
of that faded old hat that
covers my bald spots

That faded grey hat
is damn near my favorite
it's right on up there
with my black beaver Stetson
and almost as good
as the hat with the logo
"IF IT HAS TITS OR WHEELS
IT WILL GET YOU IN TROUBLE
"

Ride like the Wino reminds me of the mail-order customized Santa hat for my dad that was supposed to read Dunc. But every Christmas Dad was a proud "Dune" passing out the presents.

Write one!

Sounds a good Dune(c).
