Thirteen ways of looking at …

I
Robots cut metal
Precision shapes and sizes
One, two, three, four, five

II
Men in overalls
Shielded faces from the arc
Pieces together

III
Bright scarlet powder
Spraying in plastic-coated booth
Colour beautiful

IV
Rounded, from China
Fit to your undercarriage
Full mobility

V
Recycled plastic
Little beads re-used for you
Thrown into machine

VI
Rotomoulded lids
Hung to dry on pulleyed wires
Cooled to perfection

VII
Steady assemblage
All together now, complete
Ready for new homes

VIII
What is in a name?
A ruby Continental
Eleven hundred


IX
What about the kids?
Let us paint one black and white
To look like a cow

X
Who is this one for?
Design the logo, stick it
To the side forthwith

XI
Calls from the councils
“Give us our goods, thirty please”
Get them on the truck

XII
Destination: towns
Throughout the entire country
Filling up the streets

XIII
Filling up with trash
Useless items now disposed
Feeding the landfill
