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.
