SAME THING

I felt for that fellow the other day

Hand hard against face as if to say

Why am I forced to suffer this way?

 

I smiled in sympathy as we two met

While he winced a response I won' t forget

As my "Earache, old chum?" acknowledged his fret.

 

"Nah", he replied, with a hurry-by tread,

"Mobile phone..." - from a quickly shaken head.

"Same thing!" I thought - and just as quick said!

Aha. Cynicism becomes you. A jolly poke at the IT generation!
