New Poem: Cell Phones in Heaven . . . and Hell

The following poem is based pretty much on my observation of college students, who sometimes sit together at a cafeteria table without talking to one another--they're all on their smart phones. I certainly know Facebook, but have only heard about Tinder and Snapchat. Those apps scare me!

In heaven there will be no cell phones

In heaven there will be no cell phones
(I have this on the highest authority)--

all communication will be eye to eye
face to face, chest to chest..
No more texting, selfies,
Facebook, Instagram--
No, no Tinder.

In hell, that's another story--
there will only be cell phones,
forever and ever. Amen.
