Operating Instructions

Operating Instructions

There is a task to perform
I don’t know how
I seek advice, and I am ignored
I feel stupid asking for help.

Open my eyes and see
The words: “Operating Instructions”
On the task before me
“Read Carefully” and “Cautions”
Broken down steps there
On the panel nearby
Tell me how, what, and when ~
Oh, what a glorious high!


Remember – this was written long before the days of the Internet and You-Tube how-to videos. Still, how many of us try to figure out how to do something before reading the instructions?
