Where Have My Emojis Gone?


Where have my emojis gone?

Where, where, where?

They’re not on my iphone.

They’re not anywhere.


Perhaps they’ve absconded

Gone on a spree.

Such jolly, jaunty things

My playful emojis.


Is it too much to ask them

To come back here?

My messages without them

Are cold and bare.

I Take My Hat Off to You


There used to be a saying when you praised somebody

‘I take my hat off to you’ but now very few people

Wear hats, except now for men when winter sets in

But ‘I take my beanie off to you’ doesn’t have the same ring.
