suggests a 'SPICE' theme
The Spice Girls may have been nothing more than a British phenomenon ( exported to Oz as all British things are), so I apologise to other readers to whom this is incomprehensible.
THE SPICE GIRLS
They were naughty, they were nice;
They were sugar, they were spice.
Ten years ago they knew such fame!
Everybody knew the name.
The Spice Girls! Icons of their time!

To sing such songs and thrill such fans.

Who's really bringing down the house!
Time marches on for all it seems;
Ambitions end as faded dreams.

Standing at the kitchen sink,
Humming tunes inconsequential
That once seemed heady and essential.
It all ended in a trice
Those long-lost days that were marked by
It was ever thus here:
