Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 978 (To Give A Quiet Holler)

We hollered across the plain-

With the prospect, of local information, to gain.

.

We waited, for word, by pony express-

From loved ones, to a specific address.

.

Snail mail eventually took its place-

Back then, it was considered letters delivered in haste.

.

And, then came the telephone-

With one person navigating, letting your personal

business, to the whole town be readily known.

.

The party line was certainly a go-getter-

Sharing a line, with just a few folks was a trend setter.

.

To remember the days, when we got a call-

And, had to stand, in the corner, and talk on the phone,

that was attached to the wall.

.

Pay phones helped to ease the load-

When we traveled elsewhere, on the road.

.

Cordless became the rule-

To talk out in the yard, became the normal cool.

.

The cell took its place in line-

Conversation everywhere is what we could find.

.

And, now when we holler at that special friend-

Instant messaging or a text is what we send.

.

Simple words, across the screen-

No vocals involved, just the message seen.

.

We hollered across the plain-

With the prospect, of local information, to gain.

To set the tone-

Before we all carried that cell phone.
