Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

The Old Wall Phone To The Cell Phone
I started out hung on your wall
A device for communication.
You had to crank me to make a call
And speak loudly for good reception.

I got better looking every passing year
On your desk, I was able to sit.
I became a businessman's friend
And a good job for receptionists.

As one decade followed another
My form began to change.
You could find me in every color
And my shape would rearrange.

Then suddenly I had become
A mobilized contraption.
Everybody’s got me
With a million applications.

They walk around with heads ducked down
The world just passes by.
Never seeing anyone
They never raise an eye.

I’ve become their new obsession
Oh, the selfies I can name.
The many stories I could tell
The people I could shame.

I have replaced the old desk phone
I’m every business man's dream.
The world has entered a whole new age
We’re looking at a whole new theme.
