Before, letters and
notes were written or typed,
a wasted effort

Later, a boon to
students and office helpers
but wasted papers

Now, scanning marks its
impending demise. Costs and
convenience supreme

Written for Leo's Haiku Heights Day 27 with prompt xerox

  8. Progress. I'm old enough to still remember the smell of mimeographed material...loved it. It was probably the equivalent of glue-sniffing!
