Mcdonalds Worker Observed
Watching the absolute efficiency of her moves
I realized that Jacques Ellul is correct
That we live in the age of technique
My hunch being that our cultures
Will become ever more linear things.
Only our great traditions proofed beyond institution
Christian, Muslim, Jew, Budhist, Other
Or any place or person where love exists,
And does not hope to manipulate,
Only in this can we even begin to hope
For that which will save us from the coming hardness.
