What Happened To My Career? - Poem by Charles Boucher Jr.

It disappeared
Used to love drawing those blueprints
Getting my lettering just right
Had been told
Some of the best ever seen
The advent of the computer
Changed all that
No hand drawn
Other than sketches
Now I'm at the age
When the transition
Required returning to school
Having to learn more
Just to compete for a job
With someone half my age or less
What is it going to be like
For those youths
When they become my age
Will technology continue
To dominate the future
Or will greed continue
To dominate technology
The new and improved software
Needed to to be learned almost annually
It's a treadmill
The hamsters are running
Pursuing the technological
Food pellet
