1957 - Poem by Sally Plumb Plumb

Swank back,
swing arse
girls of glass.
Don't pass them
in the street,
stilletoed feet...
three neat,
black lashed
Saturday morning spenders
for the jive dive
swinging rhyme
gin and lime,
drink sublime
hot time
in the old town tonight.

    Glad you liked my Pictures poem Sally.
    I was only three years old in 1957 but remember hearing my parents
    talking about them out dancing etc.Like me going back in time can bring some good memories.
    Love the style of this poem. I see you wrote this nearly three years ago, it sounds really new and fresh! (Report) Reply
