THE OLD WHEELBARROW
Old wheelbarrow's going still, Long with engines new, ‘Spite of engineerin' skill, Has its work to do.
Fivver going mighty strong, Smashes up one day, Old wheelbarrow comes along and carries it right away.
Airship roaming through the sky, Slips a cog, perhaps; Old wheelbarrow passin' by, Totes away the scraps.
Time, some big improvements bring, There's no room to doubt; but the plain old useful things, Can't be done without.
