[Tort passed his bar examination in 1935. He retired from the practice of law in 1983.]
The phone rang constantly making
The phone rings no more making
me so very sad,
What happened to the calls of
The calls that were to me so dear.
Why have I been left out in the
Is it because I am so old?
Are the memories of my clients
and stenos so short
As to leave me so distraught?
What happened to people I have
Do they not realize the lost feeling
I have felt?
As I dwell upon the years that
have quickly passed,
It is obvious that nothing, no
As I sit on my porch feeling so lost
The lack of the phone calls hurt
me the mast.
You see, the phone simply rings
