Where are the simple phones of yesterday?

an anti-mobile villanelle (you knew I'd get round to it someday)

Where are the simple phones of yesterday?


Damn these mobile phones of today.
Built in Finland, styled in France
Where are the simple phones of yesterday?

At a movie, a dinner, even on holiday
Silence no longer has a chance
Damn these mobile phones of today.

No call waiting, we'd talk and talk away
Alas, talk's no longer an uninterrupted dance
Where are the simple phones of yesterday?

The secret contact that's a single 'A'
We won sordid affairs for fine romance
Damn these mobile phones of today.

The "guess who's this" games we'd play
Not just identification at a glance
Where are the simple phones of yesterday?

How long will these carcinogens stay?
When will we break this ring-tone trance?
Damn these mobile phones of today.
Where are the simple phones of yesterday?

Ghordopics i missed, but rest assured AM making up for: mush

mushwhacked: the proverbial bug, i am waiting to ever catch.

woefers- the innate brand of loner/ loafers that are content at droolling and dying over strange, elsuive, unknowns of wither gender.

bhlirt: the inherent brand of flirtation where twittering eyelashes force you to lose your contact up your skull and clever dialogue turns into blubber.

bedlock- becasue 'love and marriage' just dont go together like a horse and carriage!
