Coveting My Neighbors' Hats

Coveting My Neighbors’ Hats

I covet hats I cannot have
They fill me with desire.

I see a hat on someone’s head
It fills my heart with fire.

There are hats that I will never wear
For me, they’re much too fancy.

But, when I see a hat I can
My pocket change gets antsy.

I’ll never take a hat
That belongs to someone else.

But, I’ll take a gift of one
If it’s just sitting on a shelf.

I don’t feel ashamed
For longing for hats that are not mine.

My addiction will slowly grow
My head thinks that’s just fine.
