Put on your thinking hat

and pull up the flaps to uncover

the brainwaves seeping

out at the hairline. There

is a new sheriff in town

and she wears a skirt, drinks

lattes, adores hat pins,

and speaks softly in excellent

rhetoric and unfaultering

 jargon.

.

At thrity three, the world twists

a bit aslant the equator; her eye

on the market, her goal, equity,

already achieved. High heel

tempo is in equal rights flat,

an archive of gray matter, she

brings enlightenment to the work

place..

.

Corporate males rebel at will

but such battles will be hard fought,

energy intensive, and losses

unprecedented. Complement her

entourage or condemn the advance

as a breech of front lines, but

responsibility is embossed on her

standard in really fine cross stitches.

.

She also tats a rather intricate

pattern of lace during board

meetings. Beware those hat pins.

They tend to sting when they

prick.

you like hat pins too?

i am 60% finished with covering a hat with pins. i'd be closer, but i've taken to covering other hats as well. you know, diversity.

 

i wish the sherrif in my town spoke softly and liked hat pins. i'd imagine i would get less speeding tickets for having a nice hat.
