“A Real Change”

Years back I fixed the broken
or let’s just say I tried
now days it doesn’t make much sense
to all I must confide.
You pay for parts or service
which both are now too high
for less than the cost of repairing
you can another buy.
They have the warranties figured out
almost unto the day
so to get extended coverage
is a wasted fee to pay.
What do we do with all the extra parts
this system does create
we fill up the junkyards and landfills
and they raise your garbage rate.
Parts stores will go out of business
for no longer is the need
yes our high tech technology
means more than what you read.
So now when something breaks down
I look for a place to throw
for I can buy another cheaper
than to fix it, don’t you know!
