Ode to Pencil and Paper and Maps

Gone are the days of pencil and paper –
of quick mental computation and physical maps.
Now we depend upon calcuators and google,
on thumbs and updates and apps.
And with each update my computer
seems to get slower –
I think right now I could beat it in a race
to find the answers I need
with greater speed
using pencil and paper and maps.
