Them Was the Good Ole Ways



 Each December our fuel company drops off a new Norman Rockwell Calendar...I esp. like this picture!

Back when us young ‘uns
Was punished fer wrongins’
That went against The Good Book
When things like fishin’
Was what we was wishin’
Wasn’t the thing that they took
Back when God’s Word
Was read and revered
And taught in both home and school
Them was the good ole ways
the 'See-you-in-church-on-Sunday' days
Unless of course, you was a fool

  1. I loved those good old days, and you've represented the feel of them very well here. I like Norman Rockwell, too.
