Cropped Tops



I was around when they were worn,

Back in the seventies was the time,

Ladies fashion demanded cropped tops.

I remember the day well,

A young lady was running passed me,

Her cropped top she wore,

But there was nothing on beneath it.

So as she run towards me

Her naked boobs

Swayed from side to side.

What a wonderful sight

A twoderful sight to behold.

    Just to say that the Moody Blues are one of my two favourite groups from back in the seventies, the other being Pink Floyd.

    I recall it all so well - does it still happen - I live a sheltered life these days

      So do I the only 'bobbling' I see nowadays is the bubbles in the dishwater!

      Oh lol, a fine write Gold!
      I should get out more. But in some (old) quiz shows, they run down the steps, and some bobble. Bruce Forsyth always noticed it, to the point of being a bit pervy and embarrassing some women! They should reply: 'What's that dead hedgehog on your head?' (his wig).

        Thanks Orchi, I am glad you didn't swoon.

          My 18+ watchdog may have started off barking again, if he did not spot the 18+ marker!

          LOL 'twoderful'. I just left a video clip for Orchidee to demonstrate something.... just wondering whether i should do similar here.

            It would not go unappreciated.

              Thank you Laura.

              Fashion is a very strange thing that it has to be changed every few months. I wonder if there may be money in it,

                Thanks for the VIDEO ANDY ~ Lovely haunting melody ~ sung & played at 60's Ballad Pace Beautiful. Loved the POEM too ! having been born in 1983 ~ I missed the introduction of so so many titillating (an apt word) ~ Mini-skirts ~ Hot-pants ~ Topless Beaches and Bars ~ Cropped-tops ~ Flower-power ~ Free-love etc etc. However in the 21st Century all these things still exist and resurrect in one guise or another every Spring & Summer ! The only advantage I have is that I may live to see Man walk on Mars and even the outcome of BREXIT. Yours BRIAN

                • Goldfinch60

                  Of them all Flower Power was the most meaningful "Make love, not war" - if only....?

                  I don't think any of us will see the outcome of Brexit!

                  I still listen to the Moody Blues! A Question Of Balance and Days of Future Past and On The Threshold Of A Dream are my favorites! ahhh, those were the days...

                    I have all the Moody Blues albums, they are a wonderful group.

                    Some of those images will never stop running on earth.
                    Now days I've seen lots of buttock cleavages, due to the low rise jeans, not exactly a sight to behold~~LOL
                    ;)

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank youClaudelle, some images just pop up in our memories.
                      With buttock cleavages I assume you mean bicycle racks. LOL.
