U3A Writing: His Hat

D Nolan tells of the man in the hat.

He drank a lot of porter
That sort of man
Not of the literati
Though he always had a plan

He walked around the city
In the slums and in the street
He would talk to poor and rich alike
Whoever he would meet.

He learnt of all the characters
That wandered here and there
Whether standing in a pub
Or sitting in a chair.

Everybody knew him with his funny hat
But when they asked about it He'd say,
I do all my thinking
Beneath my little hat.

One day when they found him
He had just dropped dead
But his funny little hat remained
Right upon his head.
