Trunk Calls

AnElephantCant rely on his email
His laptop or broadband go down
So he is making a plan
As an Elephant can
He is no technological clown

There’s an old fashioned method called writing
It’s much easier to learn than you think
The Chinese used feathers
To mark down their letters
But AnElephant uses pencils or ink

He just pops his mail into a post-box
And it will get where it’s going next day
So no need to worry
Is he in such a hurry
Has he got anything real urgent to say?

In an emergency he can use the telephone
It saves someone deciphering his scrawl
Wherever they are
No matter how near or far
An Elephant can employ a trunk call

Don’t rely on the new-fangled e-stuff
Like Flickoff Netbook or Facelog
These daft online trends
Don’t make you real friends
You’d be better off buying a dog

So let’s remember alternative methods
Of telling our chums how our daily life goes
We can always write
Or phone them at night
So much safer than those broken Windows

    I miss those face to face chats. And I am not talking about Face Book. I tried that.
    I am not much of a telephone talker either. It always seems I am the listener. 😦 But it would be better to listen on the phone than have somebody just tell me, “I’ll send you an email.”

    I do like the IM. At least I am talking in real time.

    And I miss the laughter. I can’t hear…..LOL…no matter how big or capitalized it is.

    I miss the written letter too. And those that I do get especially from my own kids………Oh the misspellings and the horrible handwriting.

    What a depressing comment I have written in anelephantcant’s blog.
