An Endangered Species

Once upon a time a phonebox
In the days when I was young
Was the height of technology
And from where taxis were rung
Or worried mammys and daddies
By youth out upon the town
A little palace from the rain
A place of universal renown…

A place of advertisement
That would be well known all right
From Get rich quick schemes to taxi numbers
To numbers of ladies of the night
But mobile phones have killed them off
Those phone boxes once so grand
Now the phone is in our pocket
And few kiosks today stand…

There’s nothing left of the olden days
Their worth we don’t realise
Even the gurriers among the youth
Wont have them to vandalise!!!
