GOLDEN AGES(Aristocrats and Artists)

Woody Allen mythologized Midnight in Paris
in the 1890s,the 1930s and in our jaded days
Every city has a Golden Age.Some have many/waves
Rome as centerpoint of Empires rising and falling
London Elizabethan,Dickensian,modern
Berlin 's Cabaret,Theater,music and raves
Vienna of Austro-Hungarian Last Days
with Freud,Hitler,Stalin,Trotsky drawn in-
Gustav Klimt,Egon Schiele,Wittgenstein
Even little villages defined by Blue Plate"What Has Been"
Lubbock for exiting musicians/Lamesa's Forrest Fest
Melbourne for its Cafes and Comedians
New York for it's relentless self-promotion
LA lays down for filmmakers and musicians
and Austin sparkles with eclectic cosmopolitan
contemporary adaptations...
