Where did the soda fountain go, that's not a mystery.
Like the mom and pop grocery store, lost to history.
The corner store where the owner greeted you by name.
The big box stores have no soul, it just isn't the same.

REBEL, REVOLT, find one of those stores left, so few.
You can help save it, and they'll be happy to see you.
Sure it is cheaper elsewhere, but those few cents of cost.
might secure/rescue a bit of nostalgia, before it is lost.

I'd call Mike at Millers' Hardware, tell him what I need.
Was ready when I got there. How's that for speed?
I am guilty as all, and saying it isn't at all nice.
We've sold part of our soul for a few pennies of price.
