September 18th…“WHAT WAS FASHION LIKE WHEN YOU WERE IN HIGH SCHOOL AT BATTLE GROUND, WASHINGTON IN THE LATE 1960’S?”
POEM – “What We Dared To Wear!” by N. Elliott Noorlun
What we dared to wear, When we all had hair,
Those days were lax, So we didn’t care,
What moms or dads, Or society thought,
Let’s give it a try, And maybe get caught.
Letting our hair grow, Long and low,
It was the far out hippie, Way to go.
Tie dyed T-shirts, Bell bottomed pants,
That usually scared, The uncles n aunts!
And ohhh the mini skirts, That caught the eye,
Of every wild, red-blooded guy.
And who could resist, Some Beatle Boots,
Or the early rock group’s, Special suits.
Cause there in school, Back in those fun days,
You’d dress just like, The latest craze.
For the girls, Their boots were “Hullabaloo”,
White and tall, As they’d dance for you.
It all depended, If you were brave,
To wear those styles, Or be a knave.
Were we silly kids?, Yes, maybe so,
But those were the fashions, In the long ago.
