Easter Parade

Marching, marching
Flowered bonnets
Flowered bonnets
Tripping the light fantastic.

Mom got so excited;
“Turn on the TV”
“Who’s the grand marshal?”
Look for the fire department in line. 

It has always been an attack on my ears
And my hat never had enough fruit on it.

    Shirley MacLaine wrote a book on past lives - a real spook. Commented on this one on PFT. As a young man my only criticism of Easter bonnets was that they covered up too much. Love, daver
