From “Bullwinkle and Friends,”
she’d learned that chocolate pan dowdy
could be hazardous to her health
(rocket fuel being an added ingredient).
From “The Flintstones,”
she’d learned that
a minimalist, animal-print wardrobe
was living like a cave girl.
From Looney Tunes,
she’d learned to stay away from Acme trucks
& never drink alum.
She’d learned a lot of useless things
but from it all,
she’d learned that adults with imagination
had made her Saturday mornings
memorable & bright.
