Mixer

My very modern digital
kitchen whizz blender
efficiently beats mixes blends
pulverises foods of varying
textures thicknesses stodginesses.
But first I must assemble all
its inner parts before adding
the ingredients. Next its lid
must be locked on just so, the
combined parts in its jug
connected to the motor unit
just so or it refuses to operate.
Once the ingredients have
been duly combined I must
persuade the blender to
unlock and release its lid.

I have already done my time
of whipping stiff mixtures
with an egg beater until
my arm is sore and aching,
of beating with a whisk
until my arm felt like lead.

Battling with the blender
still takes less time, my
arm retains its strength.
