Newspapers Are So Last Century


By Elton Camp


You still get a paper a young man sneered

Obviously thinking that I was quite weird


He thought that getting the news online

Should, for me, be just perfectly fine


While I am the process of transition,

I still see need to take the print edition


For one, nothing else does so fine

A messy kitchen garbage can to line


For the fireplace, a paper’s the best

It ignites more easily than the rest


I use it also to peel the potatoes atop

Not a speck on the floor will drop


Especially when I want to swat a fly

To hit him with an iPad I’d never try


And to cancel the paper I’d be a jerk

Since it’d put those folks out of work


So call me an old fogy if you will

I’ll subscribe to the newspaper still
