Flapper haikus.

New me starts today

Oh, how I’ve let myself go 

Fetch my workout pearls

Ethel Gregory

Lost five pounds from Spanish Flu 

She’s a lucky bitch

Modesty be damned

Chop off my hair and bring me 

A looser corset

Harriet, Eunice

Gertrude, Millicent, and Blanche 

Are in my girl squad

What in the Sam Hill? 

Ethel is hot AND funny? 

Pick a lane, Ethel!

Suck it, convention!

I’m going on a solo 

Automobile trip

I’m going to wear

My sluttiest knee-length dress

The first time I vote
