Where did I put that darn phone this time?
Cell phones in high demand.
Can't do anything without one in your hand.
That's why I'm begging the world for advice.
Why cant I ever find my device.
I spend all day frantically searching high and low,
thinking when did I have it last, did I drop it in the snow?
Could I have left it on the bar?
Did it hitch a ride on a falling star?
Did my bottomless purse eat it for lunch?
Or was that it in my shoe, I just heard a crunch?
Did I pack it in my son's lunch box?
Or put it in the drawer with the undies and socks?
If I don't find it soon I won't be able to survive.
That phone does everything,
It keeps me alive.
How will I go on, there must be an app?
You know the one that finds your device on the map,
but I guess I would need my phone to use the app.
This is exhausting I think I'll just take a nap.
Or maybe I will just order some food.
OMG I need the phone to call the delivery dude.
I guess I will sit down and have some writing time.
but, without my phone, I can't spell or rhyme.
How will I make it; how will I go on?
Without it I can't even listen to a song.
you don't get it my phone is my very best friend.
It helps me with everything, I just hit send.
Now I can't go shopping or work.
I can't even text my ex to tell him he's a jerk.
I wonder how my life was before?
Way back before cell phones walked in lifes door?
How did I ever do anything?
It seems like a hazy nightmarish dream.
I guess I will have to sit here all alone.
I can't talk to anyone without that damn cell phone.
Wait I just remembered I had it this morning around 8.
When I called my boss to tell him I was running late.
Then I ran in the house to find my keys,
but I never left because without my cell I was Ill at ease.
That's what got me started on this all day adventure you see.
So could it, would it, possibly be?
Oops there it is right where I left it.
Shining like a beacon how could I forget it.
So once again I'm asking the world for advice.
How do I keep from losing my device?
