I take out my notebook and my pen
It’s so last century
But what the heck!
My notebook is not out of battery
Or dependent on a server
My pen writes the right letters
And does not mistakingly auto-correct
Yes, I can’t directly post it
But perhaps we post too often
Too much, too soon!
You can decide not to mail
A letter after some contemplation
The send button is not there
As a temptation!
Oh, yeah letter writing is also passé
We used to do it, but now we e-mail instead
My son was not sure where to put the
And called the stamp a sticker the other day
And the letter he wrote
Was an assignment for school
He may not write another letter
Everything is digital
Fast and real-time
Breaking news is ordinary now
We can see what’s happening
In any part of the world
For that we only need a cell-phone
While I wait for my IPad
To find the server
I will write and read the old fashioned way!
