In the book "Gaily The Troubadour," published in 1936, Arthur Guiterman wrote the following poem. Reading his observations, you wouldn't guess it was written nearly fifty years ago.

First dentistry was painless;Then bicycles were chainlessAnd carriages were horseless And many laws, enforceless.

Next, cookery was fireless,Telegraphy was wireless,Cigars were nicotineless And coffee, caffeinless.

Soon oranges were seedless,The putting green was weedless,The college boy hatless,The proper diet, fatless.

Now motor roads are dustless,The latest steel is rustless,Our tennis courts are sodless,Our new religions, godless.
