remember when hippie
meant big in the hips,
and a trip involved
travel in cars, planes and ships?
when pot was a vessel for
cooking things in,
and hooked was what
grandmothers rugs may have been?
when fix was a verb that
meant mend or repair,
and be-in meant merely
existing somewhere?
when neat meant well-organized,
tidy and clean,
and grass was a ground cover,
normally green?
when groovy meant furrowed
with channels and hollows,
and birds were winged creatures,
like robins and swallows?
when fuzz was a substance,
real fluffy, like lint,
and bread came from bakeries,
not from the mint?
when roll meant a bun,
and rock was a stone.
and hang-up was something
you did with the phone?
its groovy, man, groovy,
but english its not.
me thinks that our language
is going to pot..

I was born in 1983.....and my memory only goes back to 1995.....kinda sad on my part.



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

LOL!!! That is soooo funny! I have got to let my mom read this. She is always saying something about how teens talk today and how meaning to thing have changed. Great job.
