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.
