MY ELUSIVE CELLPHONE (c) By Polly Guerin
I assure you I give care
Yet, that elusive cell phone
Has a mind of its very own
I meant to put it in plain view
But alas it disappeared anew
I wonder where it went?
Under the piles I have spent
Looking here, looking there
Perhaps it’s under a chair
Believe me this isn’t really fair
I’ve reached the point of despair
I pay my bills each time on time
Why does my cell phone decline?
To make a visible appearance
It took off without clearance
Somewhere it hides each day
In a nook or it’s stashed away
There’s no other recourse I admit
With this annoyance I am in a fit
So I surrender to my land phone
And dial that elusive cell phone
Alas I hear a muffled message tone
Talking to me but I’m quite alone
Till I look under the papers on my desk
Need I say more, put the subject at rest.
“It is a Delight!!!
