I got to thinking about texting and how a couple of my grandkids had used by blog in text format to communicate with me. If I could encourage the others to do the same it would be good. Unfortunately when I rang the eldest grandson yesterday he said “sorry grand I’m at a sleep over can’t talk bye” and put the phone down, it’s pretty clear where I stand in his order of priorities. Texting though seems to be the way to go. Being a bit of a poet I got to thinking about writing a poem in text just for them well here goes.
Texin 4 dumys this cld b fun
2 tlk 2 my grd daughters + grd son
They don’t spk English the way I do
But som of d lingo do come thru
D tings dey do keep dem on de go
To talk to der grd dad I don’t no
I no dey rite poems and they nt bad
So cum on u lot do a poem 4 grdad
In tex o corse hav yor say
Or nex time del be hel to pay
The first ever published poem in text! Or is it?
