Treasure Island

Udiah (witness to Yah)

(1959 / USA)

The Rechargeable Man


Ni-cad and Lithium batteries
Have positive and negative posts
One collects, the other rejects
Within the electrolyte host

A type of semi-conduction
Takes place when charging each cell
‘til it’s charge, puts halt to the barge
Of the electron flow as well

Man’s body is like a battery
Where caustics and acids dwell
Unsettle? Toss in more metal
And watch the conduction swell

And when it finally burns out
Its computer turned to a toast
Doctor’s shout, that without a doubt
His life was made better than most

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
