Now and Then in 2017©

There was a time when I was younger

That there was this constant hunger

 

Time has passed and the years have flown by

Sometimes joy and laughter, sometimes a good cry

 

Vows kept under the stars we met

A grandson that keeps me young without regret

 

Where once I had a great left hook

I now rely on Facebook

 

I could compete at a track meet

What I do now is Tweet from my seat

 

In lieu of at the rink with my team
I’m Linked In to the latest dream

 

Before, at the diamond with a bat

After, I share the world with Snap Chat

 

Amazon was a great river in Brazil

Now an ecommerce site with a bill

 

Past, hanging out at the mall looking for chicks

Present, replaced by watching Netflix pics

 

It used to be four on the floor
Instead my best friend is an I Phone more

 

Many hours once spent polishing chrome

Replaced by Google Chrome in your home

 

Parallel parking used to be a real pain

My car parks by itself again and again

 

At the pumps no more

The car is electric and less a chore

 

I find myself often saying

Is there an “app” for that, and then playing

 

In conclusion I have no dilution of days gone by

The days of yore are long gone and I’m on standby

 

To give it all a try

    Changes by 2017 quiet different from the past
    The changes in IT and knowledge take place fast
    True, good work
