Blasted Cell Phones

They’re everywhere you go these days; those 
Loud, obnoxious, boorish louts,
Land-line shirkers, hand to ear 
Talking just below a shout.

Outside office, on the street, crowded 
Restaurants, cars and bars, 
Trains and planes and subway stations, 
Doctor’s office, super mart.

What could be so urgent that 
It truly couldn’t bide? 
Are we so self-important that
We lose all sense of pride.

And what’s become of privacy,
Courtesy and grace? 
And as for common sense, they’ve 
Launched it into outer space.

Time and place is everything,
Or so it use to be. 
Except for cell phone addicts
Who reject civility.
