1929/The Jazz Age

Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

flappers, with tall blond
hair, a decade of the
doller, bubbles of false
prosperity, a crash, a hit,
a miss, a sudden dropp
in the bankers eyes
and face, the start of
a new age-the jazz age.
the age the stock market
crashed, and fell to the
ground.........

    Wow, Dadid, the title captured my interest and then you deliberately made me acknowledge the other parts of reality occuring at that time. I like that, wonderful poem!(Report)Reply
