Space-Age Hooks and Barbs

It has been DECADES!

And yet, for some ridiculous reason, we 
still choose to TIE our shoes and
BUTTON our trousers, ZIP our
blouses.

How ridiculous.

When Man first invented the wheel, do 
you suppose that there were some naysayers who said;
"I'm still going to drag my loads through the dirt on a rope. It was 
good enough for my father and by gawd it's good enough for me!"

I doubt it.

So. (BUTTONS FLYS LACES)
Why do we stoop to such Medieval methods of
attatchment Today?
Who knows. But I eagerly await the day that Velcro finally
gets the credit it rightfully deserves.

    Oh, my God. I sew and you really had me laughing out loud with this poem, Geoffery. Indeed, velcro has made life easier for some of us. However, I was in a play once with a costume that had been sewn (by someone else) with velcro side seems. I threw open my arms to make a grand gesture and the velcro came apart. Would have paid anything for a zipper at the time! What a hoot. Goes to my favorites. Love, Carolyn
