After September 11, 2001
When there was yellow magnetic ribbons on cars? 
And American flags flying in the USA?
Black and White TVs?
When gas was under $2.00?
Computers were made in the USA?
Floppy disks?
You Got Mail?
No, not the movie.
When your opinion.
Mattered to politicans?
When you made a call.
From a telephone booth.
When we all wanted to grow up.
When all our mail was delivered.
By a postman.
Time before the Internet?
Books were all paper.
Not an EBook.
When a married couple.
In movies had separate beds.
When hamburger were all one size.
When girls were required.
To wear a dress to school.
~ Ricardo
