Battery
I remember back in the day when I was a battery.
Working without health insurance just above minimum wage.
In hopes to become hired fulltime.
But I was just a battery used all my energy then thrown away.
The man lines his pockets with silver and gold while mine is lined with copper back in the day because I was a battery.
People working for a temp. service they all know they're a battery.  
All their energy drained away then thrown away like a battery.
They had hopes to become more than a battery thrown away.
Batteries are the new norm. in society, battery, batteries.
Were you ever a battery?
Drained and recharged and drained until your use is done then thrown away like a battery.
To be used and thrown away like a battery...
Work battery
Friendship battery
Emotional battery.
Thrown away for one reason or another.
There is one thing for sure God will never treat us like a battery.
