When We Used Words

Remember Jeannie with the light brown hair,
Foster wrote about like vapour on summer air,
Then people wrote actual words to listen to,
Not something sounding like lunch at the zoo,
It went on for many years we used actual words,
Not loud sounds, growls, and twitting like birds,
Words like Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan wrote,
In the 60’s in Greenwich Village now seems so remote,
Carly Simon Joni Mitchell Judy Collins Pete Seeger,
The Weavers, Oscar Brand, at the Gaslight Bar,
I don’t think I am alone in this opinion many think alike,
We call that period “classic” the years just after IKE,
