Connected

Two tin cans

enable two small friends

to talk across a field of green

via a piece of string

The two tin cans

are replaced next morning

by little walkie talkie things

they talk to mum and dad

and as they talk

voices travel

through field and over hilltop

carried across telephone posts

Whilst letters travel,

as fast as light

converted into numbers and

sent by a web

Acrostic internet News TV

Read all about it!

In response to the prompt
Newspaper

Now, here’s something

Everyone’s taken aback by the news today

When you go to the shop to pick up your paper – it might not be there

Some bright spark in Fleet Street would rather you use your

Personal device via “The web”.

All in a vain attempt to be one step ahead of the TV,

Press hacks aren’t happy as their work is consigned to history (and the fish shop)..

Expect a few rumbles from this idea

Reactions from those on the front page – definitely mixed

A Slight Change

As Christmas is coming I’ve decided to change my blog layout a little

My First Day Cover Order Form arrived today – all on the explorer Ernest Shackleton

(My old scoutmasters are looking down on me right now – and they’re smiling!)
