This poem was fun! I liked the way to held to the story without making it sound contrived like rhyming sometimes does. Good Entry!
That was HILARIOUS!!!! The title caught my eye and I was not dissapointed. LOL
What a fun, entertaining poem! I tell ya, those cell phones can be a trip! Haha! Great job!

Loved it! Very clever.
I loved this and the timing of reading it made it even better. My husband and I have been searching the net the last few nights trying to find the best new cell phone packages. What a nightmare! I can totally relate to wanting the best features, yet finding cell phones to be carried away (loved the idea of a phone making tea! I'd buy it! hehe)

Great work with turning such a fun and unique idea into a well written and entertaining poem. Hope you place well!



PS - I plan to share this with my husband when he comes home from work. I'm sure he'll enjoy it too!

Too funny! You know, I wouldn't really be surprised if they start making cell phones that do brew a cup of tea. If it brewed coffee, I'd snap it up in a second!
Great humor, great fun. Well done!
Blessings, Lynda

This WAS hilarious! I love the pace and the rhythm. It does take a certain type of talent to write this kind of poem, kind of half poet/half comedian, I think. My favorite line was "And passed the promised satellite, instead of bouncing back". I had to read it twice because it interrupted the pace I was reading at by making me spit laughter all over my screen. :>)

How funny!! My cell phone frustrates me quite a lot. It's never beamed me into the far reaches of space and reality, but I've felt like sending it down to the terra firma many times!!!
I am still laughing... This is a really cute poem. I especially liked...

"And if the line is busy,
It will brew a cup of tea.”

Keep up the good work!
