Who says we can't re-invent the wheel?

Who says we can't re-invent the wheel? 
Dr Abe V Rotor
Living with Nature School on Blog
Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid with Ms Melly C Tenorio
738 DZRB AM Band, 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday
Royal ride on an elephant; elephant's wooden wheel wagon, Bangkok

Bullock's "gypsy" wagon, Philippines
Counterpart of the horse's chariot of war,
the peaceful bullock's cart on rice paddies,
kariton or partigo' our village invention,
all from the wheel through the centuries.

We wonder at technology's evolution,
from a rolling stone to wood to steel,
relegating the wheel today to the museum,
and denying we can't re-invent the wheel.~
