Hello? Hello? Can you hear me? Are you there? Hello?
Spotty cellular coverage, sometimes, in we go.
When, inside this train we all chug along, in our earnestness to connect, especially with someone we haven’t heard from in a while, or someone who’s just so interesting,
We may not be in the quiet car, but tone it down if you will and try to talk under your breath.
You are not the only one in this place, be considerate and mindful but most of all,
Because it’s Fourth of July
Put your feet up (though not on the train seat, okay, your legs are fine)
Let’s let our freedom (and cellphones) ring!
Pray our train don’t derail,
And think about letting our manners prevail.
