A Birthday gift / Verse .................................
A Senior Citizen is One who was here before; the pill,television, frozen
foods,contact lenses, credit cards...........
and before man walked on the moon.
For us , "time sharing " meant togetherness, not holdiday homes,
and a chip meant a piece of wood.
"Hardware " meant nuts and bolts ,
and software was not even a word !
We got married, first then lived together,
and thought cleavage was something that butchers did.
" A stud " was something that fastened a collar to a shirt,and " going all the way " meant staying on a double decker to the bus depo.
We thought that " fast food " was what you ate in lent;
A "Big Mac " was an oversized raincoat and " Crumpet " we had for tea.
In our day; "grass" was mown,
"Pot " was something you cooked in,
" Coke " was kept in the coal house and a joint was cooked on Sundays !
We are today's SENIOR CITIZENS .
A hardy bunch ar 'nt we ?
When you think how the world has changed !
