Old things are new again
New things get old fast
You can’t recycle new things ’cause they’re not old yet
Old things get dubbed classic
New things get dubbed bomb
But can classic be bomb?
Can bomb be classic?
Old things are called antique
But when you buy an antique , is it new to you?
Old things get handed down
Can new things be traded up?
Old things create nostalgia
A longing for yesteryear
New creates euphoric feelings for the short term
Once you get your new things home
The newness quickly wears off
Are old memories better than new ones?
If you’re not making new memories
Are you recycling the old ones?
New is expected to learn from old
But will old humble itself to learn from new?
Are old sayings and proverbs wiser than new ad slogans and catchy song lyrics?
Can an old flame be rekindled to what it once was?
Can a new love spark a flame to burn into eternity?
