Poetic Thursday: Before

Well, it’s Thursday again, so that means poetry with our friends, Pam, Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats.

This week’s photo for our inspiration:

And here’s my poem:

Before

On the corner, the old drug store;
a pharmacy, but so much more.

The soda fountain was the hangout spot
after school and after the ‘hop’.

At the back counter, your prescriptions were filled;
with no hi-tech machine to count your pills.

You always saw someone there that you knew,
and caught up on the latest news.

…before the big box chains came to town
and closed the little drug store down.
