Times Have Changed
Times have changed so the saying goes,
Nothing ever seems to stand still,
Until you get to be elderly,
Then there’s lots of time to kill.
In my day we never stayed indoors,
We always went out to play,
Especially in the summer,
There were endless hours in the day.
We played hopscotch and catch the ball,
But now it’s all click and shoot,
We loved a good game of rounders,
Or cricket, it was such a hoot.
So what will our children remember,
When they get to this fine age?
A memory of screens and four walls all around,
Like living in a man made cage?
So being elderly in the 21st century,
Is really not all that bad,
We’ve lots of memories for us to enjoy,
All those fun times that we have had!
