This is a post early on about cell phones – contraptions I say!  Only because I’ve never owned or used one and don’t know how to.  Having recently discovered a tablet and worked my way through that and now a laptop each so different in it’s own way.  I wrote this, although not personally true, as a “what if”.  Hope you enjoy 🙂

Although ancient not quite yet

A cell phone I simply did not get

The woman thrust it in my hand

And yelled with voice quite grand

Call an ambulance please be quick

Oh my hands they were quite slick

My earnest desire to help was great

And suddenly myself I did berate

As I stood and stared in disbelief

The woman was choking on roast beef

I had no idea how to turn the thing on

Quickly I yelled, but which one

I pushed first one and then another

My heart beat wildly and did thunder

Another walked up to me and said

It’s ok, I’ve called instead

Into my chair, I suddenly slumped

For I was well and truly stumped

These newfangled gadgets me befuddle

Leaving me in such a muddle

You see, a cell phone I’ve never owned

I shook my head as I groaned

The woman would be fine I was told

My relief was at least sixfold

I guess it’s time to buy a cell phone

It seemed another gadget I must now own.
