ANTOA POETRY: The Old Ways Of Old Days

The Old Ways Of Old Days  

We love the old days, 

And its old ways. 

We love the baggy,

Never saggy pants. 

We love the big shirts,

And how free it makes us feel. 

We love the old days, 

And its old ways. 

We love our hair full,

And round like lollipops 

In the streets. 

We love the vinyl,

And how it drew us closer 

Like bees on honey. 

We love the old days, 

And it old ways. 

We love the black and white 

TV and its faint color. 

But hate the black and white 

Days and how its ways shaded 

Our skin with color.
