Where Do I Stand?

My four feet high pedestal fan
a mixture of blue and white
with buttons red, green, yellow
and black

twenty -five years of age
looks pretty clean, wiped
every day, serviced every year,

hitherto ran smoothly
with a humming noise
fussed midway

with a bustling noise
 growing audible
 as the hour advances.

Oiling would arrest
the incohesive sound
 I think.

only to find the loudness
 turning most pronounced.

Annoyed, I push t
he so long faithful fan
to a corner.

Resignation dawns
Well, if that be the case
of a 25-year-old fan

Where do I stand?
