Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 402 (Those Phone Books)

To find someone, we used to go-
To that phone book, that we all
happened to know.
.
It had the names and numbers
of our friends around town-
It had the lists of businesses,
that were also found.
.
It was always by the telephone, for
us to use-
It got thicker and thicker, making
it impossible to lose.
.
They said that we used our fingers
to do the walking-
And, we still do, in order to keep
up with our non-stop talking.
.
But, in a different form, for many of
use our fingers, the same, still to
find-
But, instead of opening a book, we
tend to go online.
.
It is said that the paper telephone book
is going away-
Still, it would be nice to have one, for a
rainy day.
.
To find someone, we used to go-
To that phone book, that we all
happened to know.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Three We Used To Do (2017)

1. Stand in the corner at home, to talk on the phone.

2. Get up to change the channel, on the TV.

3. Go to the circus.
===============================
After 146 years, the ending for
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Baily
Circus is underway-
After a few more cities, it will be
gone forever in May.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 378 (No Dial Tone)

Once upon a time there was no dial tone-
There was in fact, no type of phone.
.
.
One had to write or go next door-
If any exchange of words, were in store.
.
.
Or holler, or perhaps talk, over the fence-
Of course, things have changed, to the tune
of immense.
.
.
We finally got the phone, where the operator
would blast our personal business all over
town-
And then to the party line, where many callers,
at once, could be found.
.
.
.
And then we went single line-
Leading to the mobile, that led to the
continuing twittering, of what is on one’s
mind.
.
.
.
Once upon a time there was no dial tone-
There was in fact, no type of phone.

For you know that you can handle this alone.
