Poetic Thursday: (First) Class

Since it’s Thursday, let’s join Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats for a little poetry.

This was our photo inspiration for this week’s poem:

And here is mine:

(First) Class

Just look at that elegance, style and class,
who could have known it wouldn’t last?

Men in ties, LADIES in heels;
that era just had a different feel.

There was kindness in all that was done,
from a somber event to one that was fun.

Pride in one’s appearance every time you went out;
and you had respect for others, there was no doubt.

Guess I’m old fashioned and over the hill,
but I tend to wish it were that way still.

(Well, until it came to walking through an airport in heels….)
