Ramblings In A Phone Booth - Poem by Harriet James

I'm trying to remember
When last was I stuck
In a phone booth on pavement
Without card or a buck.

‘Twas in Chicago Illinois
When trying to phone home,
(ET comes to mind)
That reminds me of Rome -

Frantic calls to the bank
To send me more money,
Pickpockets had cleaned mine
Now that wasn't funny.

And the film, ah yes
Colin Farrell; never saw it,
Preferring the red phone booths
In a typical English village.

Inspector Morse and Miss Marple
More my cup of tea.
Is that the time already?
Enough ramblings from me!

    Funny write. Loved it. Are there still phone booths?
    What will become of Supeman?
