The Change.

The furlong is replaced
the mile is not seen
the yards have disappeared
come now the kilometers
that be for the distance
accompanied by their sisters
brothers and cousins
for weight and height
the width and length
get a new measurement
the change is the only thing
that be permanent
so we could envisage
another systemmeasurements soon
that qualify the measurements
with the F.P.S system
giving way to the C.G.S
there might another alphabetic coinage
appropriate for the new.
that be too soon
as we get bores with the existing
Change makes us revel and enjoy
