Back to an Innocent Day

Take me back to an innocent day when hula hoops and roller skates held sway Pop-tarts, Hostess cupcakes, snowballs and twinkies girls played with dolls, and boys with slinkies

Hey, we could just set our clocks back 35 years or so. I might get tired of turning the clocks' hands that much though. (Duh! How about that for a Polack joke?! lol). :) gw

It worked Gershon, your poem took me right back to childhood. What a different world the children of today face. A poet friend, Bill

Remember when they used to talk about a generation gap? I think that what we have now is a generation break! -- The younger generation is BROKEN. Who will fix them?!

Gershon, I wish I could return to those more simpler days. Childhood, we did know we had it made. Nice poem

Our lives were pretty simple, weren't they? I didn't have homework or report cards until 7th grade. Of course, that changed big-time soon enough...

Similar in age? Hmm. Are you 39 too, Mike? As for wisdom, I took an IQ test when I was 19. They're still calculating the result... Here's to Laughter, gw
