Resistant to Change - poem

Lawrence Hall

Resistant to Change

But what change would that be? A fallen oak
A leafy country lane paved into progress
Lifestyles and glowing screens instead of friends
Superior locks and fences and bolts

And childhood photographs fading away
Just like their subjects in the long ago
Christmas morning cowboys in pajamas
Cap pistols silent now in Kodachrome

Dreams crumbling into frail antiquity
Resistant to change? Yes, rigorously so.
