No Shortcuts Please! (Poem) - Poem by Dave Tanguay

With, television, movies, music, the internet and old fashion gossip
Where do the young find refuge to absorb all of this high-tech?
Surely, with personal computers valuable information is gathered
With the help of the agency called gosip
We find so little time to see how we all as human beings all relate
And connect

Our modern technology can brings us the answers that can help
Save the lives - of so many
Also, entertain us with activities to satisfy the wishes of both the
Young and the old
However, walks through Mother Nature are becoming rare and Obsolete - she misses our solitude and solemn company
Though science can teach us “ HOW, ” it all comes alive - only God
Can explain “ WHY? ” it all so beautifully unfolds

Yes in the classroom it’s real you can touch it, you can see it - OH -
It’s all so sensible
All the pieces fit together we find joy in the explanation of “ HOW”
It all functions
However to answer the question “ WHY? “, with God the answer is
Quite comprehensible
So take no shortcuts please - on your latest discoveries, for the “ HOW” and the “ WHY? ” must find true conjunction

“Or your newfound discoveries will truly wind up as major Malfunctions”
