Remember Poem


Remember when a flower was

just a flower

and not a flower pic or a

popular fragrance

Remember when a song was

just a song and not a

hit song.

Remember when a face was just a face

you actually saw

somewhere besides Facebook.

Remember?

Remember when a school wasn’t a

factory,

when a ride was sometimes in the back of a truck,

sometimes in a wagon.

Remember when you’d see people in a field.

Remember when it was a long way to town

and church was a little building with fans

card board fans with Jesus on one side,

because there was no air conditioning,

and there were porches,

not porch-like nothings added as decoration.

Oh we got a lot

out of the engineers

and all of that silicon,

and we left a lot

behind.
