It was something like
putting Humpty Dumpty
together again —
this heavy package
delivered the other day
that was alleged to be
a kitchen cart on casters.

It was a mail order item
that looked good
on the computer screen
and assembling it
should have been a “piece of cake”
for a wise old man.

It was a good distraction
from the news of the day
and it elicited more profanity
from one who seldom swears
than when his Apple
disappoints him.
