Calculating Between

The calculator is calculating its own lifespan [F]

'Till the random numbers repeat again [baoloa]

It must enumerate its own inner connections [F]

And recharge its battery now and then [N]

It must count chickens before they are hatched [F]

Two, four, six, eight...nine [N]

Digits flashing redly, blurring [F]

Dot by dot and line by line too [N]

Chips and busses [baoloa]

Tasty and fast [Anon.]

This busy deus ex machina [F]

has calculated its last. [K8]
