Cars break down, phones malfunction, computers get infected
but the F 91 soldiers on.
Cheap and ubiquitous. Everybody seems to have owned one.
Its "beep beep" woke thousands this morning.
It measured and guided their days all long.
It has a stopwatch, a light, an alarm:
This is what I need
and all I need from a digital watch.
In moderate climes the battery will last for seven years
(based on an alarm and one seconds' worth of light use per day).
I wish my life was so efficient and so certain.
I wish I was so dependable.
