You see them walking down the street,
phone in hand, their world's complete.
No sight nor sound can come between
the enticement of their mobile screen.
This new generation fails to spot
the phone box of Sir Giles G Scott.
That stalwart symbol of British pride
stands unnoticed - now retired.
A letter box stands nearby,
another fashion of days gone by.
Today our world must now compete
with e-mails; Facebook; chat and tweet.
Writing and talking are lost in space,
the internet now is commonplace.
But the pad and pen they'll not defeat,
with e-mail; Facebook; chat nor tweet!
