Good Old Days
Watergate. Jonestown. Racial strife
in my own city over "forced busing."
Battle lines drawn on abortion.
Anita Bryant vs gay folks. Drugs
in the slums and at Studio 54.
Bible-belters decrying the ERA.
Cold War tensions. Nuclear threats.
Was it that the '70s were innocent
or that, being quite young, I was?
