I try to catch up
But what does it mean
To be bombarded by emails
And Facebooked by teens
I’m glad that my dogs
Haven’t learned how to tweet
For I fear that all they would say 
Is lets go out to eat

My Mom never calls
She just sends me a text
“What do you want for Christmas?
How is the X”? 
Dads on the phone 
But he put me hold
His shrink is calling
Seems all he has is a cold

Technology is ruining 
My life as you see
Seems I can’t have moment 
Even to pee
I sit on the pot 
With my iPhone so close 
Hoping not to get caught
So I did myself a favor 
And before I flushed
I dropped the phone in toilet
And it said "kurrplop".

    I've heard of people accidentally dropping their cellphone in the commode.... It's very witty write all the way through to throwing it in on purpose... right down to the of 'kurrplop'.. Smiles :)

    This has me laughing. I confess to dropping mine in the toilet, not once, but twice. I promise not to tweet you..( Im not even sure what that means.) Bg
