The cell phones, untethered, collectively died,

And folks who’d been yakking with friends far and wid

Quite suddenly found their tongues technically tied.

cellsUnmoored from their moorings, cut off mid-conversation,

People wandered about in complete consternation

Before finally seeing, with a sense of elation,

That those standing nearby could provide commiseration.

Connections, it seemed, could be made face-to-face,

Not only with people in some other place!

Until…new satellites were put back in space;

Then the phones started ringing, their lines resurrected,

And all the new friends wandered off, disconnected…
