My phone

The Borneo Post - Good English - - News -

By Neal Levin

My phone has tons of gad­gets, A hun­dred-fifty rings,

Can store a thou­sand num­bers And other nifty things.

My phone can send me e-mail And news from far away, Pre­dict to­mor­row’s weather,

And tell the time of day.

My phone can down­load mu­sic, Take pho­tos in a flash,

Make videos and movies,

And re­ally make a splash.

I heard that in the old days

(I’m not sure what this means) That peo­ple used their phones to talk To other hu­man be­ings.
