Smarter than a Smart Phone

I feel left behind in the race By not keeping up with the pace I don't text at all It makes me feel small I hang down my head in disgrace Even monkeys can text on their cell phones! What the world thinks of next? Must we be clones?! Every eye looking down With a smile or a frown While I stare off in space, all alone! I resolve now to stretch my horizons I resolve how to text, I will try one!! I will not be annoyed so will purchase a Droid! Am I wise enough to use Verizon??

    Wonderful. Very clever and delightful reading. Keep the great poems coming! As for cell phones and texting, I am a confirmed Luddite so I can relate. A plus!

    Congrats on your winning work..I have never sent a text so don't feel bad..My hands are so arthritic now I would probably have to use a stylus to press the keys on the phone..Sara

    Oh Carrie - I purchased a droid month ago and am bringing it back to Verizon. I curse it each time I forget how to answer a call or call someone back or text or anything. I'm going back to an ancient flip phone (can't believe I'm calling it ancient). Don't give in! love, Kathy

    Noooooooooooooooooooooo! LOL. Don't give in! I don't text either. Heck, I rarely use my cell phone. I still send snail mail. I still use a camera instead of a phone for a camera. I almost picked up a rotary phone at an antique shop the other day, love that sound! I even enjoy black and white movies! ;) Stay true to you. PS--- ya made me laugh! Nice one.

    This is a very cleverly written write my friend! I really enjoyed reading this incredible and wondrous poem this evening! What a delightful piece, very humorous! Great Work!!

    carrie, you are NOT alone. It's even worse for me, because I have to face this crap in my classroom every day and have to get on their backs not to text during class. It's making my life so stressful and then I hear of people dying in cars because of it. We are not missing out, Carrie. They are!! (good limerick)

    Lol. You are not behind at all. You'll catch up in no time. You'll be saying "Droid or Apple" :)
