If I could crank a call

to action, I would make

a nickel last a lifetime

within fifteen minutes

Your legacy was

reintroduced by name

Yet never known by a shape

other than an amorphous blob

Simply mentioning the word nickelodeon

brings up memories for many

Majority won’t understand the etymology

Word which outdates the paradigm

Mechanism which expanded minds

Converted to machines synonymous

with day glow green slime raining

from orange clouds and white bubbles

Double dare you to make the grade

for the modern life of rugrats

sponges off the nostalgia

you can’t find on television

Five cents operated the nickelodeon

but it was a sixth sense which

resurrected the name and

reimagined entertainment
