Delayed Reaction

 

“Next time, buy North American!”

they said, on seeing my car

while loading their LaserJet

into my Mazda.

 

I should just have left it there

standing on the loading dock.

left them basking, ignorant

their hypocrisy

 

The event in question happened about 20 years ago,

as I was loading their HP LaserJet printer, made in

Singapore, into my Mazda, made in Japan. They stood

 on the dock and condemned my Oriental wheels.
