Class Reunion Time is getting close……..

Class Reunion

 

I read an ad in the paper one day
In the Dallas Morning News
All about my class reunion
In a town near Santa Cruz

.

I tried to decide if I should go
To meet my friends and peers
And see how classmates from the past
Had aged in all these years

.

I finally resolved that I should go
And see what I could see
And meet my friends from the senior class
Of nineteen fifty-three

.

I rented a tux and a black toupee
Then brushed my shoes and hair
I trimmed my mustache and my beard
And changed my under wear

.

I emptied the bottle of after shave
And rented a limousine
I brushed my teeth with Ultra-Bright
Then gargled some listerine

.

I soon arrived in splendid form
With a flower on my chest
Sporting a rented diamond ring
And smelling my very best

.

Now I was dressed in the finest garb
Like a monarch at a feast
When I discovered that no one there
Seemed familiar in the least

.

Well not a soul remembered me
And my heart dropped to the floor
When I remembered that I was in
The class of fifty-four

.
