once there was a time

when I waited the for ice cream truck could buy something for a dime spent my days at the pond that’s when there was more time take in a movie with popcorn still had left over change at the corner drugstore counter stools were all arranged my windshield would be cleaned the engine got a bill of health neighborhoods were amicable those poor or with wealth you maintained your own identity no scoundrels to scam your security things were out in the open back then optimism was key, there was no obscurity did not need Maalox for heart burn foods were free from additives no credit cards to spend freely living then was more conservative when home was home and not a camp the Sunday dinner was a hearty meal yes there was at time in my life when life was young, quite the deal
