We used to wait by the phone, waiting for it to ring
Wouldn’t go out for the fear of missing important calls
Be it glad tidings or apprehension of bad news
Staying by the landline used to be our preference when waiting
Then came the mobile ( cell) phone settings us free
All you had to do to stay connected was to charge the battery
Now we get all the news and information we desire
On the go with a small device in our hands
There is a signal in the phone!
Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Bonus points if you use it as both. Have fun!
