Day of Change

Not that mechanized

Computerized people could sever

Their reliance upon gadgetry

Crippling but clever

And become children in the garden

In one day, or ever.

It took time for soft bodies to grow

Accustomed to the raw hard toils.

But minds sprung into action

Like spring-steel coils.

They fed themselves organically

They windmilled energetically

They fish-farmed hydrostatically

They clustered geodesically

And solar heat—emphatically.

They bartered economically

And thought and counted mentally

And moved and talked more naturally.

And all these things they cherished

Because they were doing them.
