There was once a time
when we played in the sand
when people did not mind the sun
and children knew true fun
that had scraped knees and rolling in the dirt.
Life was very simple back then
there were no gadgets to distract anybody,
there was no talk of intolerance
there was no mention of waste disposal
nor was there any excess food.
Clothes were bought only if the old ones were worn off
and if hand me downs were no longer fit
Mothers made clothes
that would perfectly do
and fashion was meant for the fashionable.
Food was homemade
and children healthy
Natural medicine was a granny’s recipe
which made you healthy again
Castor oil was a child’s nightmare although
Times have changed
Intolerance, mobile addiction,
to name a few
Man is slowly drifting away
from what once made his day.
