By now everybody should have
The heaps of waste we all generate.
A quick purchase of food lands in a
Some fruit in a free cellophane bag.
My mobile phone’s battery to be
The plastic cover had to be removed
A continuous waste production
The poet’s never ending task to react
Daily to his environment!
Ride on bus 401 to the ‘City of Saints’
Take the U4 to Schwedenplatz and
U1 to Nestroyplatz. Samsung shop.
On top of a new battery
The technician’s work four times more.
Perhaps I got a so called free-phone
From a service provider
But pay again for the technician
Just to change a sealed-in battery.
I’ve had a Nokia C5 series cellular phone
From 1999 until today
And it gave me a very good service
And I was shocked as I could not load
Its battery one day.
But trying again after a while on the
Power it loaded again
The familiar signature tune sounded
To my utter joy.
