The Cell Phone Craze: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Invention of the cell phone beats one of the car

as we'd rather switch back to horse and cart

an agree to walk no matter how far

than from our cell phone to part.

Doesn't take a shrink to call it a surrogate friend

or maybe a parent, a teacher, or whoever

it has become really some crazy trend

not making us look very clever.

Those incessant monologs sounding a big deal

on sidewalks, in stores, restrooms, and bars

and selfies taken with narcissistic zeal

not to mention texting in cars.

My special treat is hearing those cyber-fights

as idiots get oblivious to all people around

one of those truly irreplaceable sights

to watch and hear how they sound.

And yet, not so much I'd mock rather

than two morons sitting at the table

having chat by texting each other

what I call "socially disabled".

Protests about privacy are a laughing stock

as you don't need to tap anyone's phone

just follow the freak around the block

and you'll know all that's going on.
