Their Voices Were the Same

Their voices were the same
but their faces and their
heads (some bald, some
with toupees, some with
dyed hair) were much
older for the PBS fund-
raiser and he loved hearing
their hits from many years
ago and he wondered what
all those singers had been
doing through the years to
make ends meet or as Soupy
Sales used to say, “If you
can’t make ends meet, try
vegetables.” And he thought
that Vegetable Soupy was
way ahead of the day in
recommending micronutrients.
And he hadn’t thought of
Soupy Sales since about
the time those singers
were making hits and had
full heads of natural hair.
