False friend

by cricketjeff on January 15, 2010.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

This thing is called a mobile phone
It guarantees you’re not alone
It wakes you up quite late at night
To see if you can be polite
To random drunks who call a mate
While in a somewhat parlous state
But when you want a friend to call
The bloody thing won’t ring at all!
