1980 TO 1989



      I am the Alaska oil spill,
Valdez Exxon.
   I am recession begins,
Get your stress on.

   I am American hostages  
In Iran.
   I am the release of Nintendo
And Pac-man.

   I am the war on drugs  
And inflation.
   I am the AIDS epidemic
Spreads through the nation.

   I am Michael Jackson
Released Thriller.
   I am John Lennon shot,
Chapman, the killer.

   I am Oklahoma City gets
A bomb.
   I am PG-13 gets
Added On.

   I am the Titanic wreckage
Recovered.
   I am the Motorola mobile
Phone discovered.

   I am the age of  
Reaganomics.
  I am the surge of
Electronics.

   I am Billie Jean,  
And Jessie's girl.
   I am Eye of the Tiger and
We are the World.

   I am Tom petty and
Back in Black.
   I am U2, David Bowie
And Love Shack.
