The Sign Used to Read
by Connie Walle

   Tackle, Worms
     Ice Cream
   Boats 4 Rent

Now it reads

 Beer and Gas

Where can you get
a real rocky-road
ice cream cone these days?
Or homemade vanilla,
like Aunt Francis made,
laying aside her “from scratch”
German Chocolate cake?

Why do I long for
the “good ole days”?
Is it for my youth?
A more peaceful time?
Or was I just too young
to understand the words
depression or war?
