Why Can't Time Just Slow Down A Mite

Fries and gravy,vanilla Coke
a jukebox waiting for a poke
E8 filled the Maltshop
with Frankie Avalon
Poodle skirts and saddle shoes
Where have those fun days gone?

Jiving by the counter
hems down below the knees
Kids that used their manners
always saying ..Please !!
Young lovers holding hands at night
while strolling in a park.
Safe to walk the streets alone
after it was dark.

Times change,but not always for the better
