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.
