Awaken by a sudden desire
I decided to call my sweet american boyfriend
with a conflicting grammar
and an incorrigible accent
I started the long distance conversation .
He enquired if I was 'UPSET '
I told me that I was not in the 'TOILET
''Sweetheart I am driving a car
'I interpreted that he was waging a WAR
I felt ashamed of my hearing disorder
'Can I text you in the morning '
As he wanted to know
His TEXT got messed With SE* in my mind
Can you hear me ? Can you hear me ?
We wanted to enquire
We struggled with each other
Twisting our tongue and combing our ears
The line was disturbed as we continued the conversation
Till we realised that everything was lost in
I tried to make laugh I hope . . .
