Telephone Poem

Cans and strings and backyard trees
Giggles coming through the wire
Summer mud pies lemonade stands
Hang Up No You Hang Up First

Potatoes must be piled mile high
Then you add the leaves
Daddies always light the fires
Hang Up No You Hang Up First

Marriage children divorce jobs
Ambitions eat our days away
Girl I miss our silly times
Hang Up No You Hang Up First
~Mariena Soares~

I like my new telephone,
my computer works just fine,
my calculator is perfect,
but Lord, I miss my mind!
~Author Unknown~

A woman is a person who reaches for a chair
when she answers the telephone. ~Milton Wright~

How come wrong numbers are never busy?
~Author Unknown~

Words from the past:
"It's a clever idea, Mr. Bell,
but don't wire us, we'll wire you."
~Robert Brault~

It is my heart-warmed and world-embracing
Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us,
the high, the low, the rich, the poor, the admired,
the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized,
the savage (every man and brother of us all throughout
the whole earth), may eventually be gathered
together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace
and bliss, except the inventor of the telephone.
~Mark Twain~ (Christmas greeting, 1890)

Marriage is like a phone call in the night:
first the ring, and then you wake up.
~Evelyn Hendrickson~
