Oh Silly Me
Could Life Be Simpler?
Sitting here in my lonely world,
of Internet banking and credit card terms.
I am very amused at what I see,
but understand I don't, oh silly me.
Give me back those days of old,
when deals were made and stories told,
of how a neighbour helped you out,
in a crisis without a doubt,
so much simpler to talk to a friend,
instead I have cramp in my finger ends,
Computers are all well and good,
especially for all the young pups,
who sit with phone glued to their ears,
and do not listen to their peers.
Once older than forty along with greying hair,
comes a shadow of life that once you shared,
with a bright young thing all full of voice,
but now it appears the only choice,
is to break nails and concentration,
whilst using the computer to make your bacon.
