Be Choosy About Change!
Old is gold
and so's I'm told
Don't be in a hurry
to have all antiques sold
For this old adage
Todate water it holds.
Indeed the good old days
had some good old ways.
So I'd rather not exchange
old lamps for new
lest I suffer as in Aladdin's tale
and lose everything of value.
For if I lose my old lamps
I haven't a genie to restore my loss
Thus beware of modernism's shams
Don't let 'change' be your boss.
We should know what best be preserved
So olden values are granted the respect thus deserved.
For some 'olds' are such pure golds
that like gold they never fade nor catch moulds
Likewise some golden traditions are real treasures
that can't be left behind to the past generation
in exchange for surface new pleasures
For that would be soil, oops nooh, soul and culture erosion
Pray keep some olden golden customs from such corrosion!
Ah the old mores
they might seem such bores
but it's they who make
the best folklores!
