2005 / 06 / 13 - Twenty Bucks Phone - Poem by A Poem A Day

My cousin came to me carrying a phone
More appealing than an ice cream cone,
A 7610 Nokia, black, grey and red
'I'm selling it at 20 bucks' he said.
My hand reached excitedly to my pocket
As fast as a formula one car or a rocket,
But it only came out with a ten dollar bill
'Can I pay you the rest later? I swear I will! '
So he said 'you've got your deal, honey'
Then he smiled and took the offered money.
I touched the phone, it felt sweet like cream,
Then woke up, too bad it was just a dream.
