Once upon a time there was a man with no cellular device.
He went about his daily routine and never felt he was lacking.
For news, he had black and white print in front of his eyes.
He didn’t know about hacking.

When he wanted to see someone, he went to see them.
When he had friends far away, he wrote them.
When he had a phone call at home it was important.
When he was driving, he drove with comportment.

Once, he ran out of gas.
He walked to the store with a can
Instead of sitting on his a**
Because he was a man.

Once he got a flat tire.
He got out and put the spare on.
No need to call someone for hire.
By the time they got there, he would’ve been gone.

He would go on hunting trips in the woods alone.
He would camp for 3 nights,
But never felt he needed the “safety” of a phone.
“Safety? The safety on my gun I've got flashlights and rifle sights."

He remembers when he saw a phone in a car for the first time.
He thought, “How about that? They must be rich and famous!
Perhaps they are involved in organized crime!
A phone in a car? That’s outrageous!”

30 years later he thinks it is strange not to have one.
He can’t fathom life without his electronic device
Like it was there since his childhood – homespun.
But sometimes he quietly wonders if it is a vice or just a collar with a high price.
