I'm Okay Being Cold--A Tribute to a Major Appliance

I used to be called ice box. To protect my integrity, I need to be cold. At any degree, I am o.k. with myself. Made of steel; I am strong. To move me, would be difficult. Any tears are now frozen within me. What is inside of me remains good and safe. See the light and You find things of substance and value there. I do not mind being called frigid. If I should break down; You would be sorry, Not able to feed your needs. You use me and take me for granted. I have been here at your convenience, To get what you want!
