Marine engineer and drifter now retired to my home in NE Thailand with my wife, family and a mongrel dog.

This work has reached the exceptional level
I want to talk to you, not your phone!
"Menage a Phone" by PeterRHW
An evening out on a dinner date
Your cell phone nestled beside the plate.
But when the waiter came to our table
You were speaking of diets with your friend Mabel.

Then when he asked you, what would you like
You called for suggestions from your brother Mike.
The meal was photo'd and though I was hungry
It had to be Facebooked to all and sundry.

I asked you what you thought of the food
And the restaurant write ups said it was good.
I suggested a bottle of wine perhaps,
You consulted your wine selection apps.

Then the entertainer started singing
About the time your phone started ringing.
By now I was getting sorely vexed,
But you were busy sending a text.

Then suddenly came a welcome smile
From a girl alone across the aisle.
I smiled back, we left together
You were engrossed in the news and weather.

Well I've news for you, my evening was fine
And you won't find details of that online!
You'll be happier on your own.
Sure! Check it out on your cell phone.
