Low Battery

hey, hey, hey
are you paying attention to me?

there’s a problem
a big one
I’m at low battery

that little marker
in the corner?
it says three percent

please
I’m begging here
I’m blinking and beeping here
I need the charger
please

why won’t you listen?

you always wait
for the very last minute
to fill me up
as if I haven’t
been hungry for a while

offer me a charge
I need one
I’m dying
this is the last chance

the last beep

I’m finished

-powering down-

-now charging at 0% percent-
