Progress

Progress

There was a time,
Once upon,

When

Men lifted the hood
Of their car
With confidence,
Rag and wrench in hand

To diagnose and
Repair the machinery
Found there.

And a similar time,
Once upon,

When

Women
Opened recipe books
With happy hearts,
Measuring cups in hand

To create something
Delicious of simple
Ingredients.

Electronics and takeout  
have fixed all that nonsense.

One thought on “Progress

  1. Excellent! This is a perfect example of our society’s detachment from connecting with the world around us and our personal interaction with it. It says quite a bit in its brevity and truth. Well done.
