Battery

#FOWC #Battery

Built from the farmers imagination

A number of hens laid a dozen eggs each

The effort was stored in tiny little cells

Then used to power the cooker that

Each egg was cooked on

Revolutionary! cried the farmer

Yelping as he consumed the hot fried eggs

They said it was cleaner than coal

so the men in charge let them build it

starting off small

but then expanding across the greenbelt

the men at the power grid – overjoyed

as coal took a back seat to cleaner energy

the money rolled in

but nobody noticed – the barrels building up

toxic legacy hidden behind trees

till a concrete tomb was dug down below

and the barrels that ticked and clicked

found a new home below till solutions were found.

Kipping….

Humble little seed

time spent on the tree

biding its time

growing

 

building up energy

till the inevitable fall

dropping to ground

swiftly

 

picked up swiftly

and transferred to pots

energy released into
