Calculator screams

Low battery,

Change required

With constant pounding on the keys

Requiring countless acts

Of working

Some days nonstop

Others there's a lull

But the knowledge is there

That the need will come

And the keys will be relentlessly hit upon

There's no escape for them,

Beaten and abused

Flesh keys,

Eyeball screen,

Memory chip a brain

And still it screams,

Though no one hears,

Battery low

Requires change
