The Hat to Human Theory

The hat lay on the table, odd in its shape,

A shadow in the light,

The interior covered engravings sowed in the soft fabric stating its age and make,

Other markings were from the damage of time,

The exterior had a black ribbon tied around it showing that it was somewhat stylish,

First glances at the hat showed little more than a superficial image,

A mass produced product, an item of clothing, that’s all there was,

This hat had in fact had been a part of someone’s life,

Worn on many different days,

Thrown to the floor many times,

Sat on numerous different heads,

A fascinating history of its own.



The man sat beside that very table, odd in his figure,

A shadow in the light,

The man had deep set wrinkles and dark skin stating his age and race,

Others markings were from the damage of time,

He wore a black T shirt and black jeans showing that he was somewhat stylish,

First glances at this man showed little more than a superficial image,

One of the masses, a cog of society, that’s all there was,

This man in fact had been a part of someone’s life,

Lived many different days,

Fallen down many times,

Met numerous different people,

A fascinating story of his own to tell.
