Just some maudlin random thoughts;
Back in the day,
Before the Internet, Cable, Netflix, Tevo,
X-Box, Skype, Yada Yada Yada....
You had .....OUTSIDE!!!
Bike riding, Hide and Seek,
Baseball in the park...
Don't be late for Supper,
And make sure you're home before dark!
Collecting bottles for a 2 Cent deposit,
A Coca-Cola was a Dime,
A Hershey bar was a Nickle
God were those some great times!
You pretended you were a cowboy, Wild Bill or Roy Rodgers,
The Athletics were still in Philly,
Brooklyn still had The Dodgers!
Even though I'm getting on in years
And I sit on my porch and yawn,
I'll NEVER be that Old Fart screaming....
"Hey You Kids...Get Off My Fucking Lawn"!!!!
It all goes by too soon peeps, Carpe Diem!!!
