I Took My Canoe to the Ocean by Kenn Nesbitt

I took my canoe to the ocean.
I started to paddle around.
A wave came upon me from nowhere
and flipped my canoe upside down.

I swam to the shore in a hurry,
bedraggled and practically dead,
to find my canoe still upended
and sitting on top of my head.

It turned out to be rather comfy
to wear my canoe as a hat.
So, these days I’m never without it
on top of my noggin like that.

If you’re ever shopping for headwear
this piece of advice is for you:
To find something perfectly comfy,
just look for a cap-sized canoe.
