Without My Cell Phone

 By Walt Perryman

If I lose my cell phone, how would I know,
Where I have been, or I am supposed to go.

I could not call anyone that I’ve ever known,
I don’t know any numbers on my cell phone.

I would not know the time or date,
If I had an appointment, I’ll be late.

Check the stock market and how much I lost,
Check my phone bill and how much it cost.

I could not check my messages like I do,
Or check e-mail to see if there’s any new.

I could not Google and try to find,
Whatever happens to be on my mind.

Can I find my destination without my GPS?
No, I will just drive around blind and guess.

My cell phone has become an affliction,
Because, I have a bad cell phone addiction.

Because, I feel abandoned and all alone,
Anytime that I cannot access my cell phone.
