Headline Poem 7/14/14 -- 1972

Today's poem is based on a story from CBS Sunday morning about people going from convertible cars to covered cars, and back again -- the top symbolizing lack of wealth, and then high status and the good life, and then a (too) fast paced lifestyle. It inspired today's poem. 

1972

She traded in 
her cherry red 
convertible 
for a topped off wagon 
that vowed to get her 
to her destinations quicker 
and more efficiently. 
Because she now had 
more places to be 
and more people to please 
and no longer had time  
to cruise 
topless 
while enjoying 
the
sun and breeze.
