a silly, simple poem

Good, old days are long gone/ sodahead.com


Not the dog days and the forgotten ways

Not the highways and byways, of dark forays

Not the butts and ends, in creaky stairways

Not the jetsam and flotsam of the good, old days.



Not the pinching worries, where the future lays

The world’s no constant, nothing and no one stays?

Let me then sing to you, of gladness and li’l sways

Dear, oh, dear, I’ll tell you ‘bout now, today! 🙂
