Jazz Age Haiku

(Haiku Meets John Held Jr. Please comment nicely!)

Wide-eyed blonde flapper

Meets coal-black cornet player.

This will not end well.

***

Rich boy with weak heart,

Watches fullback kiss the girls.

What money can't buy.

***

She kissed all the boys,

And made damn sure he knows it.

But she can't have him.

***

Four years of parties,

All to find a rich husband.

Diploma my ass.

***

Too hot to sit still,

Dancing like a house on fire,

Flaming youth fades fast.
