Can you remember – back in the 80s
When cell phones looked like a brick?
Strawberry lip gloss – was all the craze –
Unless you went for bright cherry lipstick.
Shoulder-pads – on femme power-suits were worn
And bright coloured tubes – to keep your legs warm
Then to top off – the whole enchilada
Big hair was the thing of the day
But I’ll bet ya’ your very last sand dollar
That Stallone looked odd – dressed in that way
“The prompt words and phrases are
lipstick, brick, the whole enchilada, sand dollar, peachy, nectar, and coral. . . . Since the usual game of One of These Things Is Not Like the Others has only four choices, that’s how many of the paint chips I’m challenging you to use in your poem.”
