#594 – Batteries Not Included

Batteries Not Included
As smart as she is, it’s hard to believe that she didn’t have the foresight to ask. Heck, it’s even in the blueprints.

My flashlight doesn’t shine

My flashlight doesn’t shine at all.
My power game won’t play.
My ‘lectro dog should dance and jog,
but all it does is stay.

My robot is a pile of bolts.
My R.C. car can’t go.
My “Wonder Buzzer” should go “BUZZ!”
But is it buzzing? No.

My walkie-talkies do not talk –
they’re silent as a mime.
I hope that I get batteries
next year at Christmas time.
