Oh empty deodorant can
Why do you sit there
On my bathroom shelf
Mocking me with your emptiness?

I should have thrown you out
Several days ago
When first you stopped providing me
With forty-eight hour protection

Protection from what?
You don’t actually say
I presume it is from
Excessive perspiration?

Superfluous sweat
Can be socially awkward
But isn’t the word ‘protection’
Overselling your value a bit?

And why make such a fuss
About the fact you contain zinc
Is zinc even that helpful
In the battle against perspiration?

Maybe zinc is vital,
But if that’s the case,
Why does your replacement
Rely on silver ions instead?

Oh empty deodorant can
Why are you still there?
Perhaps it’s time I bought
A bin for my bathroom
