The Fifties Poem by Lamar Cole

The Fifties

Rating: 5.0

Back in the fifties.
It seems like the air was cleaner.
The girls were prettier.
And the grass was greener.
The cars were big and fast.
And friendships seemed to last.
People were more into things outdoors.
A little kindness was all that it took.
And people didn't live their lives on Facebook.

Time travel would be good. Go back in time to fix problems before they happen.

Thank you Lamar for this lovely poem, Lamar. The fifties was a very different era. No Facebook or any electronic devices.

And people didn't live their lives on Facebook. So so so true. Wish the magic of those days comes back.
