October Newsletter Poetry Corner: Amped Up 80s

Amped Up 80s

Savannah Lacy


We amped up the 80s with John Lennon,

Sent the first women into space

And we Don’t Stop Believin’.

Madonna starts her career

And we have no fear;

Not with our high-waisted jeans

And fishnet sleeves.

We watched Back to the Future

With Michael J. Fox

On boxy TVs wearing striped socks

We found the Titanic

And everyone went frantic

Finally, “The Simpsons” debuts,

A show of people with yellow hues.


(Savannah’s poem is featured in the upcoming Children’s Edition of The Best of Critique Café.)
