Made You Look You Dirty Crook



“Made you look you dirty crook!” And all those colourful phrases Have vanished from our lexicon They now belong to the ages! “Keep your nose to the grindstone!” Is another from way back when So sad they've all but disappeared Wish they'd come back again! Since the dawn of the computer age We speak in a different fashion Conversing in very short sentences Use acronyms without any passion! We seem to have totally lost the ability To have an intelligent conversation Emailing, texting, talking on Facebook A computer age generation! I really long for those simpler days When people took time to listen All the world seemed friendlier then Now feels like something's missing! © Jack Ellison 2012

    Hi Jack great poem, I would remove the g from missing to get your rhyme ( a little poetic licence)

    I loved the burma shave signs along the road... 'Car in ditch, man in tree, moon was full, and so was he... Burma Shave' Life was quieter then...You could stop and smell the roses... And laugh in antipication waiting to read each section of the sign.
