When he was in High school,

He heard a certain phrase…

Among the girls it would echo

And one might leave in haste.

Before bare middles and bra straps,

Girls concerned that their clothes were all right…

Getting a signal perhaps

Adjustments were in sight.

In a group of girls, one is stalling,

Making motions and pointing down…

They say, “snow is falling”

The slip of one has slipped down!

It took us a while to figure

Out this curious phrase…

Out of respect for for each other

We kept our mouths shut in those days!
