An Oscar for Your Thoughts
It’s almost time for the Academy Awards.
Theaters are showing their best movies
and someone I know wants to go.
I used to pay 15 cents to see Roy Rogers
in black and white cowboy up on Trigger.
Today with popcorn, candy and a drink
it costs 20 bucks almost, just for me,
to see violence in brilliant color.
Six teens laugh a row ahead of me.
