Pay phones still exist

Today I saw a man
Outside a local store
Talking on a pay phone
Like many years before

Pay phones you could use
While waiting for a train
And many could be found
While waiting for a plane

Inside a little booth
You had your privacy
Since it was made of glass
Inside it all could see

Some would talk awhile
It soon became their shrine
Then before you knew it
In front was one long line

Others were impatient
They had to use the phone
No one ever realized
A cell phone they would own

They’d soon have conversations
Where everyone could hear
And talk while they are driving
So they could hardly steer

I’m glad I saw that payphone
So I could reminisce
When many were around
Now very few exist
