Let me keep my ol’ fedora

I might not be the prophet John
and you are not Salome,
but could you still
let free that seventh veil
and spend the night with me.

I’ll offer you my head on silver plate,
if just
you dance for me; but please
let me keep my ol’ fedora
cause man is nothing lacking hat.

  1. Kudos! I like the phrase “I’ll offer you my head on silver plate” and the way you end it. Brilliant 55, Bjorn ❤️

  2. I was hooked by the title, Bjorn, and then saw the reference to Salome – I riffed on her story too! I like your chat=up line:
    ‘but could you still
    let free that seventh veil
    and spend the night with me’!

  3. Honestly, I could take a headless man, but I’m not sure I’d want to bed down with one who keeps his hat on! 🙂

  4. Love the word play, and the twists, and of course, one can always “leave your hat on” …. now I have the song skipping through my head …. as delivered by Tom Jones from the film “The Full Monty” ….
    ahh … well done!

  5. Well my comment disappeared. This is too funny. The John/Salome reference is quite clever. Leavng one’s hat on or taking it off is all the same in this instance!

  6. This is so cool and clever and droll. There’s definite a ‘word-to-the-wise’ in those lines … several words, I think ~ smiles ~

  7. I know how he feels about his fedora. It was a sad day when I sold my pickup truck. I felt I had lost my manhood.

I try to reciprocate all comments. If you want me to visit a particular post, please direct me directly to that post.
