Day 18- Cell Phone

You are ugly, but you were free.
I hoped you would be good to me.
You are not a lovely sight
But you can call and text and write.

Remember when you didn't work
Not here, not there, not anywhere?
Remember how I couldn't find you today?
You gave me quite a scare.

I looked for you all over the house
And enlisted the help of a helpful spouse.
Then I checked my car, the garage, a parking lot
but- alas!- I could find you not.

Yet, there is a happy conclusion to this awful rhyme,
For there you were the whole dang time
Nestled smugly on the garden department floor
Of my friendly neighborhood Home Depot store.


Thank you, cell phone, you made my day.
