Who Would Have Believed It

By Elton Camp In the seventy years I’ve been around Changes in phones have been profound For years, many didn’t have ‘em at all So went to a neighbor’s house to call Private lines were especially rare Party lines meant you had to share As soon as your conversation did begin, Clicks showed others were listening in The early calls were often such as these: A human operator asked, “Number please” Then arrived quite a big enhancement Rotary dials were a significant advancement Later, pushbuttons began to fill the need And we could “dial” with increasing speed Cordless phones were the next to appear But to a connected base you must be near Then arrived a technological leap at last Wireless telephones added so much class And then the first thing that you know We all had phones wherever we go To me, such progress wasn’t anticipated But it is certainly very much appreciated
