    Hey -

    I think politics and religion are a personal choice and I stay away from those subjects.

    I am happily married.

    I like funny, interesting or informative blogs.

    This forum has a lot of tools and navigation features. I apologize in advance if I am not following threading procedures.

    Who owns this site? is it based on ad revenue per hits?

    I want to tell the kids of today
    what it was like to go out and play
    what it was like before the telly
    when we went to bed on an empty belly
    but I also want them to share in the fun
    of the all the games played in the sun
    I would like to teach them a few of our tricks
    when we shared a lolly so we all had licks

    Welcome Lolly.

    Not mine Lolly. It's part of a longer poem by David Reilly. Couldn't resist posting the verse about a lolly.:eusa_whistle:

    Allow me to take you into my past
    back to my childhood that happened so fast
    and to help us on this journey in time
    we’ll climb aboard my tramcar of rhyme
    we will take it down to memory lane
    turn left at Glasgow when I was a wean
    so cast away doubts and open your mind
    and savour the pleasure I’m sure you'll find
    Born after the war and a baby boomer
    of married parents despite the rumour
    my story is told in Glasgow's east end
    in the fifties and sixties when we set the trend
    it is based on observations and anecdotes
    from hundreds of hastily scribbled notes
    you will find my story both funny and sad
    my growing up days when I was a lad

    I want to remind all you fifty pluses
    about our tramrides before there was buses
    there is no need for the three ha’penny fare
    as the rhythm of the tram will take you there
    we will go back to when we were nippers
    long before the pipe and slippers
    we’ll cross the bridge of generation
    no matter creed colour or political persuasion

    I want to tell the kids of today
    what it was like to go out and play
    what it was like before the telly
    when we went to bed on an empty belly
    but I also want them to share in the fun
    of the all the games played in the sun
    I would like to teach them a few of our tricks
    when we shared a lolly so we all had licks

    So allow my childhood’s observation
    to paint pictures in your imagination
    and let us revisit those bygone days
    when the sun shone brighter through the haze
    let me take your hand and we’ll go together
    down through the years to the sunny weather
    for in my memory the sun always shines
    so all aboard my tramcar of rhymes

    I like the poet and the poem. I had never seen this before. thanks
