I was lost without it today, I was out of the house and hadn't a clue what time it was, didn't know what shopping I wanted and generally felt wrong without it, and yet 10 years ago, or may be less, I didn't have one and never thought I would need one.
What am I talking about? Why my mobile phone.
How quickly this little piece of technology has become an essential part of all, or at least most, of our lives. Trouble is we rely on it for much more that just being able to ring a number. So here is my lament for today
When your mobile is more than just a phone,
and you put it on charge, and leave it alone,
you discover too late, when halfway to town
you search in your bag and it cannot be found,
you don't know the time or what you want from the shop
you can't phone a friend, you're caught on the hop.
All because you rely on your phone
which you have mistakenly left at home
