Translation:

At last catching on to my cell phone was a relief.
Then texting came onto the scene and brought me new grief.

I couldn’t even learn shorthand when I was in school.
Texting is too much like that, so I’ll stay “un-cool!”

I’ve gotten through a lifetime without using it.
And wouldn’t you know it, no symbol for the rhyme sh-t

    Hi, Andrea! Thank you so much for dropping by and giving appreciation on my latest poem. I'm sorry, i have missed to read yours but it's well-done and wonderful, i love it!!!. Yours is clever, too and I can't figure some without ur translation especially the uno which I thought number 1 like uno dos tres.... My mother at age of 64 is better texter. She texted me 1 x for emergency using the number 8 and I did not respond. So she learned... ha ha. Thank YSM!!!. Take care always. luv, Leonora
