Homage to Eli Whitney

Ah, they don't make them like they used to. I have managed to get into the The Litchfield Literary Review despite not being from Connecticut. However, my poem is about the man above, the man who made us and then remade us, Eli Whitney. For some reason they decided to center the piece, although I prefer my original line breaks and spacing. If you want to see the original and compare the two, you can let me know. But read on about my take about this most influential of American inventors.
