WHEN SIMPLE WORKED WELL

There was a time
when barn doors were simple,
and made to last,

With slide latches
crude and hand fashioned.
Designed to work.

With front gates
that swung open,
but kept the chickens
in the yard.

When a hook and nail
would keep traffic from entering.

Simple.  Functional.  Still working.
