Hipsters, Hippies Ha

I can dig it!

by Bar62

“Hey man what’s shakin?”
“There ain’t nothin 
shakin but the leaves in the trees, and they wouldn’t be shakin
if there were no breeze!
“That’s crazy cool, you are one 
wild cat.”
“That’s a gas daddy-o, I can dig that”
“You going to get your kicks, making the scene?”
“That doll’s been eyeballing you.”
“I’m all about some “back-seat bingo”, that is unless the chick cops a bit.”
If she nixes the back-seat bingo, then she’s most likely a square, and that’s the sum of it”
“Man, you best keep an open eye for the Pig!”
“Yeah, I can dig it. I was listening to 
Coltraine and Miles Davis, “
These hepcats were 
cookin, and the scene was a total blast,
That doll who gave me the 
lookover, was moving way too fast!
The Pigs came into our digs
I beat the gravel, to put distance between the pigs and myself
With the cops anywhere close, the chances of any hipsters being present
Was vastly decreased!
