When Milli Vanilli Blamed it on the Rain



I come from a time 

void of computers, only typewriters 

and touch tone phones.


Pagers were hot

like bright neon pink spandex.

Ice Ice Baby, Milli Vanilli and Phil Collins sang Sus-sus-sudio 

on the tape deck.


Skateboards just started to take off 

and pot was weak 


then cocaine hit the scene 

and the rest is history.
