Skirts and money
in their rising.
The bigger the pile,
the higher the skirt.
 
The higher the skirt,
the bigger the eyes.
The bigger the eyes,
the lowering of the pile.
 
The lowering of the pile,
the lowering of the skirt.
The bottom of the pile,
the fleeing of the skirt.
 
So, “Goodbye skirt
and the her who was in it.”

I saw a few myself on 42nd St. They sure are good at taking the money.

You got it right.
Were the days when my brain had commands of my red hot blood. And directed my feet to 14th St NW, DC and 42nd St/Broadway, NYC. All the girls on the stage, skirts and sans, my eyes could handle without blinking! And my $ bills!

Like. Thanks Robert.
