Hello steavenr, I would have been sad to ignore your so wise poem...Thbese are great lines that reflect with accuracy and perfection lot of human thinkings...The poems works artfully and give clear clues to considerations we all have I guess..It was a very enjoyable read and a moment of deep thinking...
have a nice day
the write is simply a metaphor for how the gaining of personal knowledge (if any clothing is involved) seems to always increase one's hat size and thus causes a look at others in a negative light. We seem to see others in a less than caring manner by looking down at them...as far as clothing and weight gain...I have already taken care of that in very physical way...
