"Cell Phone History"

 

An original poem by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

So your sweet heart's actions are a mystery.

 

She behaves as if something's amiss.

 

Time to consult her cell phone history.

 

It's the catalog of those she might kiss.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

The cellular phone is certainly not a toy.

 

Capable of much more than ordering takeout.

 

So here's a trick you might try to employ,

 

If you suspect that your girl is stepping out.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Explain to her that you've lost your cell,

 

After you've fully turned down the ringer.

 

If she replies that it's probably just as well,

 

The reality should hit you like a stinger.

 

 

VERSE 4

 

You see, a nice girl has a different response.

 

They're always willing to help those in need.

 

As opposed to one who feigns nonchalance.

 

She'd just as soon that the search not proceed.

 

 

VERSE 5

 

If it means someone else handles her phone.

 

And by 'someone else' I mean you.

 

Should she holler: "Hey, leave my cell alone!"

 

Your worst suspicions may be true.

 

 

VERSE 6

 

After all, she did talk to that waiter,

 

At the restaurant where the okra is fine.

 

I should have returned for a word with him later.

 

Make him understand that she was all mine.

 

 

VERSE 7

 

What about that incident at the poetry reading?

 

She commented that another poet's work was excellent.

 

Her obvious flirtation had me seething.

 

I see now that her indiscretions are prevalent.

 

 

VERSE 8

 

What's that you say: "She was just being social."

 

Well you didn't see the look on her face.

 

What her eyes said nearly made me go postal.

 

I'm getting a license to carry, just in case.

 

 

VERSE 9

 

Anyway, go ahead and do what you want.

 

If you don't see why I'm making such a fuss.

 

Imagine a high number of texts to Vermont,

 

And maple syrup isn't all that's discussed.

 

 

VERSE 10

 

So your girl's actions are a mystery.

 

She behaves as if something's amiss.

 

Time to consult her cell phone history.

 

It's the catalog of those she might kiss.

 

 

THE END
