Texts - Poem by Della Perry
Never does my mobile beep
To say I've a text expressing love and passion!
Hi, how are you, love you, need you,
I'm on my way to visit you;
Can't wait to see you!
But, it does beep when;
My friend decides she's not going to be in,
Or when my mother needs some more bird seed,
Or the spouse will be late from work because he is visiting the pub!
Or my son has vomited over the gym floor,
Or my sister needs a lift into town,
Or my older son has swore at his teacher (again) .
Or the Doctor thinks I need a checkup,
Or my mother-in-law has locked herself out,
Or another friend needs her kids dropped off at school,
Or my next door neighbour has been run over by a train,
Then the texts beep at me, when they need me for something,
BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP!
