Ode To Stank

Thy name be Stank,
your odor is rank,
my wife will never get you.

You've have suffered my noggin, 
all the years I've been floggin
the verdant brown waters of carp.

Carpe Carpio Fishing Hat

A treasured gift from a carper, 
though your look has been sharper,
so too has mine.


While some find you horrific, 
The carp know your terrific, 
And someday I may even wash you.

  1. I still want one. The hat, not the poem.

    1. Well the poem does suck I will give you that. Pretty sure Carpe Carpio is outta existence, you can't even find them on google.

  2. Don't wash it, don't wash it! It has character and money can't buy that.

    1. I did one time in the 8 or so years I have had it when I was in the middle of a bad streak. It worked. Or more accurately the bad streak probably just ended on it's own. Dang, 8 years. That's a tough hat.

  3. Caps don't survive washing very well. Better to leave it as it is.

    1. You are probably right. I have ruined at least one beloved fishing hat in the past and that is why this one has never been washed except that one time and that was a ever so gentle hand wash.

    1. Yo P. I am down. I am also extremely geeky and white which always makes for a good rap.

    1. I have been looking around the internet. Pretty sure it aint gonna happen. Maybe I should get off my arse and come up with a logo and make some hats.

    1. Now cmon Ty. That sucked and you know it. Which may have been the point and I am actually a master poet in disguise. Or not.
