New Cupboards - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

In modern days of convenience and fabrication
When words like modernization and improvement
Invoke thoughts of retrospection…met with frustration
I stand disappointed in the midst of forward movement

Remodeling is first and foremost in these innovative times
Declaring that old does not accommodate or please the eye
Making a decision to remove history of carpentry in its prime
Replaced with freshness… to the familiar say goodbye

Original cupboards made of oak… built seventy years ago
Strong and sturdy…shelves that held weight effortlessly
Created with skill … with drawers and doors … nice and slow
Within minutes… ripped and shattered in a heap… successfully

Replaced with wood faced doors that have a lovely appearance
Shelves are made of pressed wood chips... compactly layered
A sheet of grain-like imitation clings to the surface with adherence
Fate of dishes and glasses depend on plastic braces and a prayer

    I guess it seems nowadays, the thing to do, through out the old, bring in the new?
    Great read Theresa! *10*! !
    Best wishes,
    Friend Thad
