This is a second attempt on this concept. I wrote the first one so poorly that everyone missed my intent. Let's see what happens this time.

Can’t You See I’m On the Phone!

By Elton Camp

My cellular phone is my chief delight
To use it publicly, I have the right

But a few places where I have gone
Have signs: “Do not use your cell phone”

Free speech is a Constitutional guarantee
They can’t pull that Nazi scheme on me

I’ll talk when and where I please
Ignoring restrictions such as these

Equally annoying are inconsiderate folk
Whose loudness makes me want to choke

Although they see I’m using my phone
They continue loudly talking, on and on

Some even dare to laugh with glee
That I’m on the phone they can see

Some stupid joke the group shared
To hinder my conversation they dared

Therefore, this is my firm demand
“Quiet if I’m talking!  Understand?”
