Disappearing Down the Hole
Ext Byker Metro Station: Year 2023 Day
Mam is reading to Child (8) from her mobile sitting on bench waiting for train.
I’m late I’m late, for a very important date.
So what were libraries Mam?
You could take books out of them like Alice in Wonderland.
What are books Mam?
You know what books are we have some at home.
But they are ornaments Mam. What are they for?
We used to read from them.
Weren’t they too heavy?
Mam stands up and pulls child up.
They were nice to hold, they had covers and they smelt nice.
So why don’t we have them anymore then?
Well first they shut all the libraries and then the bookshops were taken over by PC Universe. People started forgetting about books… Stand back here it comes…
The train comes into view
