i went down to the thrift store
as i do on my off day
i bought a shirt, a pair of pants
two CDs, i would play
.
i bought two ties, a single book
some picture frames, today
and then at last i saw it
twas a stunning gray beret
.
i did not have a mirror
but i found another way
i took a photo of myself
beneath that grand beret
.
a dollar ninety one it was
a bargain, i must say
the best of my new treasures
was this stately gray beret
.
i took my purchases up front
my wallet, out to pay
my goods were bundled in two bags
and i was on my way
.
but at the car, i soon found out
that hat had gone astray
i hurried back inside the store
and searched the aisles away
.
alas, i did not find that hat
this filled me with dismay
it must be meant for someone else
and that's how it must stay
.
at least i have the photo
they can't take that proof away
but on this day, the gray beret
had simply strolled away
