‘Best Before’ Date 1

We’re well past our ‘best before dates’
at least, I am.
Some things do not rot, sour or become mouldy.
Maybe I am one of those.
Still useful even though not the newest, freshest or best.

When I am no longer useful
there is no point in shoving me to the back of the shelf
because it’s too hard to dispose of me.
I never want to just be taking up space
like some old knickknack on a dusty shelf,
in the way but kept and dusted
for some forgotten reason.
