I stole this from another site but thought it was worth stealing.

A POEM THAT SOME CAN RELATE TO
I remember the cheese of my childhood,
And the bread that we cut with a knife,
When the children helped with the housework,
And the men went to work not the wife.

The cheese never needed a fridge,
And the bread was so crusty and hot

The children were seldom unhappy
And the wife was content with her lot.

I remember the milk from the bottle,
With the yummy cream on the top,
Our dinner came hot from the oven,
And not from the fridge; in the shop.

 
The kids were a lot more contented,
They didn't need money for kicks,
Just a game with their mates in the road,
And sometimes the Saturday flicks.

I remember the shop on the corner,
Where a pen'orth of sweets was sold
Do you think I'm a bit too nostalgic?
Or is it....I'm just getting old?

I remember the 'loo' was the lav
And the bogey man came in the night,
It wasn't the least bit funny
Going "out back" with no light.

The interesting items we perused
From the newspapers cut into squares,
And hung on a peg in the loo,
It took little to keep us amused.

The clothes were boiled in the copper
With plenty of rich foamy suds
But the ironing seemed never ending
As Mum pressed everyone's 'duds'.

I remember the slap on my backside,
And the taste of soap if I swore
Anorexia and diets weren't heard of
And we hadn't much choice what we wore.

Do you think that bruised our ego?
Or our initiative was destroyed?
We ate what was put on the table
And I think life was better enjoyed.

Yes although I always had an "indoor toilet" in my house...LOL....I do remember the more simpler days when parents ruled and children were happy. 



We all grew up well established and responsible. Can't say that for the now generations.


I miss those Saturday nights when mom put out 2 small bowls of chips for my sister and I as we watched what they thought was ok for a Saturday night show.  I always thought she got more so we counted them. I think my mom was rolling her eyes.


Life was simple. But...now I get all the chips... :winky winky:

Thanks for the reminder Saint.  :spring1:
