Treasure Island

The Purple Hat Society


Do you look good in purple,
Do you dare wear it?
If you ask this question,
You are not ready for
The purple hat society.

Do you discard a shard
Or mock a crooked crock?
Do you see knaves
When looking at princes?
Then you are not ready for
The purple hat society.

Do you dot all your 'i's
And seal all ziploc bags?
Sorry, you won't
Make it with the purples.

Do you help support
The cosmetic industry
Not to mention spas
And salons?
That's another poem
Altogether.

Do you write a purple poem anyway
Though you know darn well
Nothing rhymes with purple?
Then I've got good news.
Send in your purple dues.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
