You are reading this poem
On a computer made by a man
Who lives in a manufactured house
Made by someone in Japan.
The house builder wouldn’t be able to get to work
Had his buggy not been fixed
By the buggy-fixer down the road
Who ate breakfast that was mixed
By the breakfast mixer Sally,
Who sat down on a chair
That was made in Alaska
By a guy who fought a bear.
What this ridiculous scenario
Is intended to point out
Is that if we were independent,
We would be without.
For to read this, thank the British
Who invented this alphabet.
When you go to the bathroom
Thank the guy who made your toilet.
And when you laugh or smile
In your everyday life,
Thank the person who made you happy.
With joy, the world is rife.
