Gone Those days!

Gone those days of our personal security

when what you saved was safe

you could walk down any street

without fear of a violent assault

on the roads driving was a pleasure

days when life was a national treasure!


Gone those days of fare priced travel

to get us to any British coastline

no scrabble then for distant shores

and nobody was wary of anyone

more laughter easier then having fun

families less tense happiness not won!


Gone those days when pride was ment

the elderly were respected by all

knives legally carried without malice

each day was looked forward to

simple amusements no money required

at day’s end everyone happy and tired!


Now few kids on the streets with a football

on computers and smart phones

or playing violent games on electronic boxes

interaction on social media

not face to face in family units with friends

but keeping up with latest trends!


Relying too much on technology cannot be good!


The Foureyed Poet.
