A Hat To Sail The Seas


It was simply made.
fold & crease, fold & crease
It was quickly made
from paper with such an ease.

With Uncle instructing us
a paper hat we proudly wore
over which we made a fuss
as soldiers marching on to war.

From battle fields and on to the sea
we turned our hats upside down
launched our boats and sailed around
the pond in surprise as pirates were we.
