Remember When - Poem by Charles Garcia

I remember the days when looking through the catalog
was all the entertainment that we had, for wishing
day dreaming was a way of life, as poor we did not have,
a nickle could be rare, a lots of time to spare, to wither
away the day, seemed endless by the way! Searching,
wishing was our dream, as knowingly the money was not
there, was no way we could afford, no way to pay,
these were the days of no credit, you pay or you stay.
I took advantage of the catalog, cut
Some pictures, made a caption, a word or two,
hand carried to my friends as stamps cost a penny,
which made them fairly rare as poor, could not afford.
