Random Poem:

Cinema Usherette (1952)

Bring on the choc ice
the cinema usherette.
The horse that romped the 2.30
John Wayne rode for a bet.
Bring on the torch beam,
we are Batmen in a bowl.
How many miles we swam tonight,
we’ll never ever know.
Drag out the Cisco Kid
from deep within his lair.
The sun is up the chase is on,
Tonto’s lost his underwear
Bring back Flash Gorden,
that would be really nice.
Sniff  usherette's stale perfume
while sucking on a choc ice
