My phone died

My phone died –

so, I buried it;

then somebody said,

‘It was probably

just the battery.’


So, I dug it up –

it was covered in mud;

it didn’t look pretty,

and it didn’t respond to flattery.


So, I cleaned it up,

and I plugged it in,

and it came back to life-

a miracle! A resurrection!


So, I charged it up

and I made a call

to a man in Milan

who pointed me in a circumspect direction.


So, I went there,

and lost my phone there,

should have taken more care there,

I’ve never been that good

at looking after number one –

and here you should say, ‘There, there.’

But, probably, you won’t.
