A 90's Kid - Poem by Sugar Bear

I remember getting up early on Saturdays just to watch cartoons
And everywhere I had my GigaPet and Nano
My Little Pony, Care Bears, and Ninja Turtles were cool
And watching Mr. Roger’s right after school
Where everything was all about Sesame Street
And I remember the times before WB
When the classics Disney movies where the top hits
And the VHS would bleep white screens when finished
Then my favorite movie now is ancient and old
And The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was my favorite show
Apple computers were the Thang
And Sonic and Mario were my favorite games
When Super Nintendo was the system to have
And a Sega was so good it was bad
Where water beds were the world!
And ponytails were on every head of every girl
Saying “Talk to the hand” made you big and bad
And “Physke! ” or “Not! ” ended every sentence you had
When you call shotgun to get front seat
And long socks and skorts meant you’re a fashion beauty
Where frizzy hair was cute
And every kid wanted to be a Mighty Morphan Power ranger too
Where pogo sticks and skip its were the toys to have
And you owned the game Candy Land
Where street lights meant get your butt home!
And you never Ever missed a Doug episode
Ahhhh real monsters and Pepper Ann were the shows to watch
Pinky and the brain, Dark wing duck, and Anamaniacs
Then everyone owned a boom box
And anyone could listen to Rock
When crazy daisy’s and slip and slides were great water toys
And rat tails were the “it” for boys
Were “Wax on, wax off” and wet willies were so cool
And it was normal to bring a plastic lunch to school
And it made you feel big just to get a lunch able
And you didn’t care for the thing called cable
Where Godzilla was scary and Chucky was too
And Nightmare on Elm Street scared you out of your shoes
When Halloween the movie made you never want to be alone
And there were turn dials on the telephone
When my parents kissed my boo boo’s to make it all better
And the rainy days to you were perfect “play” weather
When being dirty in the mud was a great thing to do
And everyone owned a bike and would race with you
When Tales from the crypt was the scariest guy
And sing along videos/songs were everywhere in sight
And the library was a fun place to hang
And you own a toy gun that shot out the word “Bang”
I remember all of those times and love them all
When Wal-Mart WAS the Mini-Mall
Call that a thing in the past
But still to me this day those memories will last
Yes those were the times to live
I was just living the life—
Cause I’m a 90’s Kid!

    As a 60s kid I can fully appreciate the 90s kid and all that made life so wonderful - I don't think it's the decade that counts, it's the joy of knowing that the world is innocent and fun. (Report) Reply
