Back Next Technicians Know

technicians know
always know
that in the beginning
in the Garden of Eden
in the middle
the sweat of your brow
and in the end
the Golden years
the return
in short pants
in short skirts
hippity hop
the Maypole
"I made it"
"I made it"
the banks
and the Hospitals
and the Ambulances
await them
And the children
bring them
the stories
of glory.

Irwin R. Shaw - September 16th 1988
