Ice box


boxy in appearance
dressed in magnets
holding papers on display
tight is the door
preventing air
spoiling ingredients
satisfying hunger
food to eat
kept fresh
from the cold inside
the famous ice box
then fridgidaire
comes along
changing everything
with its motor
humming through the night
brought frozen TV dinners
to our table every night
preserved with flavor
saving time
during a busy day
causing cancer and disease
for another day
back to natural
we all go
