Alligator Purse

Vintage Words


The doctor left,
if you were born
in the fifties.

The nurse split,
got up and pulled,
if you were
a child of the sixties.

But that alligator purse,
no longer legal, will
eternally go with
that lady.





Author's Notes/Comments: 

For those of you who did not jumprope as a kid - "Out went the doctor/Out went the nurse/Out went the lady with the alligator purse" - This is where too much reflection on the past takes the brain.
