What was it, then?

What was it, then?

Maybe Hawaiian Punch

Or Tang.  Banquet Pot Pies –

(Chicken, okay; beef, not.)

Fish sticks, tuna noodle surprise.

Hot dogs with chili

Wrapped in paper

And steamed for hours.

Corn popped in bacon grease.

(I knew food in low places)

Cream dried beef on toast.

Fried baloney and mustard

Between slices of Merita.

Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.

Seaver’s pineapple fried pies, oh, yes!

Banana splits, now and then.

Coke floats. Moon Pies.

And damned good hamburgers.

When I was a kid.  That was it.
