Lost Fun Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

Lost Fun

Rating: 4.5

I used to love to stroll on the beach
Feel the ocean flow over my feet
See teenagers freeze by the chill of the sea
And children jumping back and squeal

Its sad to see less people around
On beaches that held so many stories
Like Lee by a rock pool fishing for crabs
And Margaret with her bucket and shovel

Those were the days we used to have fun
Yesterdays are long gone by now
Iphones and mobiles and other nick knacks
Sadly has put paid to all that

So true. I was once on an elevator with two people who were texting. Came to find out they were actually texting EACH OTHER. I couldn't believe it, but they just laughed about it.
