How can I forget the past and move on?
Therein lies the best memories I could think of
The good old days before technology triumphed
And played a role in the decadence of our world.

The smile on our faces as we flew kites
Made everyday seem like yuletide
Hastily did students do their homework
So they could go out and have fun.

Time spent with peers was priceless
And we never had to pay much for happiness
Social relations thrived with great ease
We were poor but our smiles were real.

"Pura vida" was boldly written our on faces
For we needed little or nothing to be happy
Indeed, technology brought us great advantages
Nevertheless, it took away the good old days.
