Bummer of Love

The sixties seemed cool at the time
Both peace and free love were sublime
But drug-addled passions
wreaked horrible fashions
How else to explain all the mime?

Mime spectators at a mimed tennis-match, from Blow-Up (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1966).

A mime can be called Geek or Nerd
and other names best left unheard
But, with them a secret,
you know it will be kept
because, to mimes, mum is the word

It seems like an era so olden
to tastes of the boomers beholden
One very bad trip
when miming was hip
They must have thought silence was golden
