EXTRA VERSES:
Joe retired from dancing, thinking,
"Folksongs, poetry, coffee drinking,
As free from ructions and from riots
As next door bookstore Milton Wyatt's."

How were their tiny earnings spent?
Josie upstairs got the rent.
Mona's Royal Roost got their salary,
And their time, the Thompson Gallery.

Shirley Stoler, Richard Smithies,
Glenn DuBose was right there with these
When Bill Mitchell told the coterie
"Let's do plays instead of poetry."

Larry Loonin did skits wittily.
Fire burned out Jean-Claude van Itallie.
Late John Borske missed Keith Carsey
As did Ted Mornel and Marcie.
