Daily Prompts- Too quick to discard?

Are we too quick to make obsolete

What is old and has seen better days

Reaching for the new and the shiny

Relegating the used to a attic chest

Why not be clever with both our money and time

Find new uses for the used and save a few dimes

Let’s not surrender to the constant deluge

Of adverts urging us to get the latest models

Of this that or the other gadgets

Refresh our minds, post a photographs there

Of all the advantages of have the tried and tested

And refrain from going headlong into

A buying spree for the latest on the market

In response to the following prompts;




Obsolete, Chest, Clever





Word of the day Challenge;
