Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 410 (Where We Used To Go)

The modern world does not know-
That we used to go every weekend,
to the drive-in show.
We’d bring our pillows and blankets,
and wear our pajama too-
Because, we’d always fall asleep,
before the movie was over and through.
We’d always get popcorn and and a drink,
before the movie would start-
Sometimes Mama would make something
else to eat, a la carte.
There was always a swing, in front, of the
Where many playing children, were often
For Mama and Daddy could watch them
from the car-
Which was parked up next to the speaker
stand, that was never very far.
The speaker was on a pole, attached to
a wire-
As the years went by, a portable radio,
went into immediate hire.
The skeeters were taken care of, and
put on the run-
By the lighting, of a funny
smelling contraption.
And as soon as the sun went down-
All eyes, on the screen, is what was found.
Commercials, of delicious popcorn being
Included with, soda drinks being poured
Of course, we’d have to get a preview, of
what was going, to show, for the next
We’d already made our plans, anyway,
for at the drive-in, more time we would
The children would always delight in what
came after, on the screen-
For a cartoon, for the young and old, was
always shown and seen.
When we’d leave, we usually ride over
a thing that would thump-
It was called the no return bump.

For if you rode, into the exit way-
Your tires wouldn’t be any good, for
the next day.
The whole family could get in, for a
certain fee-
And, yes, there were those who attempted
to get in, for free.
Two in the front seat, and two in the back,
is what the ticket taker would see-
Sometimes, not knowing that there were
four more, in the trunk to be.
The modern world does not know-
That we used to go, every weekend,
to the drive-in show.
