A Journey from 1944 to … Now
1975-76 School Year
In 1976—the spring—
In April—quite a complex thing:
We mounted a production then
About those days—yes, way back when.
The 1940s—gumshoe tale—
Like Raymond Chandler (couldn’t fail!).
The Periwinkle Perplex—yes,
That was the name … oh could you guess
What this our show was all about?
(But don’t forget: Three strikes you’re out!)
We had a lot of fun with that—
With 40’s music—never flat!
And so another year rolled by—
It all seemed endless, my oh my.
And I turned thirty-one that fall—
Was feeling old. (Oh, Time, please stall!)
