Ben Newell

we all scream 

En route to the liquor store
when I spot the white truck.

Oh, to be young again!

Hard to believe
there was a time when those
cold treats were enough.

Eskimo Pie 
Dreamsicle 
Drumstick

These days
I need something much stronger—

And after a full day behind the wheel,
combing the streets for kids
and listening to that God-awful jingle 
I’m sure he does, too.
