Modern Heartbreak ©

Danny Reynolds
Dalton in Furness, England

As I sat, for to wait,
A callous sight caught my eye.
A moment that so caused,
A young girl to cry.

The change came so fast,
From broad smile to tear,
That I just had to know,
What bad news did she hear?

Her radiant happiness
Which so brightly had shone,
Was inverted, diverted,
By her mobile phone.

The ring tone so quirky
A text had arrived.
To tell her their romance,
No longer survived.

To add insult to injury,
The cowardly dog,
Had dumped her to the tune,
Of the Crazy Frog.
Grrrrr, bambadabamů..
