The Seventies

Back then they wowed
but now they might
seem even loud
in black and white
A photo shows
that era’s clothes
were quite the sight

  1. I was in college in the seventies, and the clothes of my fellow students were surprisingly sedate and not anything like you see in pictures. I know those clothes were typical of some areas, but not Indiana. A good poem however, and well written.

    1. 🙂 Thank you, BoardFlak! The picture is of me and my sisters, circa 1971. Normally we didn’t dress quite this brightly, but we must have been going someplace for there to have been a family picture.
