Magpie Tales ~ And So It Was!!!!



This week, Tess over at The Mag, has given us a very interesting photo which was in the Look magazine.  Here is the image....

Stanley Kubrick for Look Magazine, 1949


Here is my version of this photo...


1949


So it Seems

And so it was
in 1949
Smoke-filled rooms
Boys and girls;
Men and women
Partaking!

And so it was
in 1949
Beautifully rendered
Sex appeal on steroids
A benefit to all
Partaking!

And so it was
in 1949
Stars do it
Ads sell it
Movies portray it
Partaking!

And so it was
in 1949
The year of my birth
I believed
no harm to man or beast
Partaking!

And so it was
And so it was
in 1949
The year of my birth!
Partaking!


It was a different time for sure...!

Have a creative and imaginative day!
Hugging you
