For our Red Hats
 
Warning
 
 
by Jenny Joseph
 
When I am an old woman

I shall wear Purple

With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me,

And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves,

and satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.

I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired,

And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells,

And run my stick along the public railings

And make up for the sobriety of my youth.

I shall go out in my slippers in the rain

And pick the flowers in other people's gardens

And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat

And eat three pounds of sausages at a go

Or only bread and a pickle for a week.

and hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry

And pay our rent and not swear in the street

and set a good example for the children.

We will have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practise a little now

So people who know me are not too shocked and surpirsed

When suddenly I am old and start to wear purple

THE PELICAN
 
   A rare old bird is the pelican
His bill holds more than his bellican
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
I'm damed if I know how the helican
