It’s PHONEBOOK Day! | Edgar Alan Poems Vol 2
New phonebook day is here, as kids we’d be so excited!!
To look up dirty names, and prank businesses, our parents we not delighted.
But of great utility it was, to look up whatever you needed at the time.
A butcher, a baker, even a candlestick reseller, whatever you needed it worked just fine!
But along came a beautiful beast by the name of The Google Search Engine.
No more need for the phonebook? Not according to the 411 henchmen!
Their sales people tell you results are guaranteed, just sign up here and soon you will see!
It’s the truth they don’t want you to believe, that no one has used a phonebook since 2003!
What’s changed, I still use the phonebook!? Mutters the flat Earth believers.
Technology can’t be stopped, why bet against it? You’re acting like immature beavers.
For years we’ve had these magical devices that allow us to search for anything.
A smartphone has become one of our vices, we stare at it waiting desperately to hear the ring.
Constantly connected whether you like it or not, there’s no use for a phone book.
Even if you want to order a pizza we’ll just give the Domino’s Pizza app a look.
Pizza ordered from an app? What is this the future we’ve dreamed all about?
Heck no young chap, that’s been around for a while no doubt.
The choice is up to you, be ahead or behind the technology curve.
You don’t want to end up like that guy on Home Alone, you know, Merv?!
What’s the future of the phonebook? A waste of paper, a giant doorstop?
Or will they change into something worth a look, maybe a My Little Brony shop?
