Annoying Texters


There are certain things you notice
When you walk down any street
I'm not talking about the nasty things
You step in with your feet
I'm talking of the people
Who use a mobile phone
Who seem to wander left & right
As if they have no home
You follow them but you're not sure
Which way they will go next
You wish they would just move aside
While they make that important text.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Reached a pub after walking down busy high street and had to dodge round people in front of me with heads down, as I passed they were using the mobile phones.

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
