A page so relevant, not flippant or surreal 
except to those who were never there; nor
to be taken lightly as it set the stage for the
many icons now accepted gratefully, it was
a time where we all grew into adulthood or
hid away from consequence of not playing
a part - all the images say it discretely and 
artifice is tasked a dearth of flashy chrome

It was where we progressed from dreams
to concrete reality in songs and symbols -
proud of who we were yet aware of bigger
events colouring contexts of our existence
and we learned to express ourselves with
the gleeful honesty we still cherish today
