An Ode To My Cell Phone - Poem by Raja Basu

You are my bridge for keeping touch with everybody

Without you my life would simply have become completely shoddy.

It is for you that I am always in the loop about what is happening in the lives of my friends and relatives

I have all of their latest news, whether it is my best friend’s ailment or my cousin’s proposed visit to Greece.

You are always there to help me to contact and get contacted, no matter where I am

Whether I am at the office desk or driving in the road, I just give it a damn.

It is for you that I never feel away from my home even while being so far away,

I mean it, dear, now I cannot survive without you even for a day.

    Well Sir! Now people cannot imagine a life without a cell phone. We are getting addicted to new gadgets so fast; we forget what was our past (Report)Reply

    Nice written, dear Raja Basu. The message is clear 'we cannot live without the cell-telephone'. It's a part of our system (or of your ear) . (Report)Reply
