Hoskins’s General Store

By: Felix L. Perry

Ah…things were so much simpler then
A man’s word was in his hand
Soda pop was one thin dime
Rhubarb wrapped in a rubber band

The man behind the counter always smiled
knew each and every customer’s name
Sunday he closed for the Lord’s Day of rest
Looking back now it seems a shame

Fishing hooks and home made lace
Enamel paint, waxed bologna or comic books
Things were sure a much slower pace
With treasures found in all the nooks

Old Port tobacco for Daddy’s pipe
A special hat for Uncle Tom’s bald head
Fresh picked valley apples nice and ripe
Or a pillow for Grandma’s feather bed

A place to hear all the local news
Sit on a packing crate or a wicker chair
Hank Williams sang on the radio
Or perhaps a baseball game for us to cheer

Hoskin’s General Store in black on glass
A spring loaded screen door on front and back
Two ESSO pumps if you needed gas
And groceries all packed in a paper sack

Oh I miss my youth and those good old days
They now seem so much better in so many ways…
