Hats off to prycopyn (spider)



HATS OFF TO PRYCOPYN.

Perhaps you’re feeling jaded
And your life’s gone rather flat
When middle age is beckoning
And your waistline turns to fat.

Don’t give in to depression
Just take a trip to Rhyl
Prycopyn’s got a remedy
Far better than a pill.

Yes David Zebediah Webb
Prycopyn to his mates
Has hit upon the answer
To misfortune from the fates.

He’s bought a brand new BOWLER HAT
With a super curly brim
He wears it when he’s shopping
And when training in the gym.

He wore it down to Cardiff
For the Dewi Sant week-end
And his picture in the Echo
Started off this latest trend.

So if you’re fed up with a humdrum life
And want some notoriety
With a proper hat you too can join
The “BOWLER HAT SOCIETY”
