The end results of a cell phone call while driving

Can you hear me now????
Can you hear me now????

Voices from the dead and injured are begging you to call later

Collect Calls To God,
And The Cost You'll Pay.

Let us ponder cell phones,
glued, screwed and tattooed 
to drivers ears, as they sway 
swerve, brake and veer all over the roads. 
It is estimated that a high percentage
of recent fatalities are caused by 
cell phone distractions, text messaging 
dialing numbers, dropping the phone and so on.

Cellular destruction of the flesh,
where the last sound a loved one, 
your boss, your lover, or your kids will hear 
on the other end of your final call, 
will be the screeching of rubber, 
the rending of metal, the shattering of glass, 
your cry of fear cut short, and the fracture 
of your skull on a windshield bursting outward. 
Needless to say the cell phone usually falls 
harmlessly to the floor, and is hung up by 
the responding emergency crew.

Your mobile phone could quite 
suddenly become your last stop. 
Your personal lap top could 
wind up in the confines of a coffin,
with your hands folded neatly over it. 
Your palm pilot might just palm you off
to less then heavenly rewards. 
your ear bud might just 
become your newest enemy 
your smart phone mind end up 
electronically brain damaged
and your blue tooth might change
into a mouthful of red teeth.

This will leave you with a collect call 
to God, and he will collect you,
and the cost you'll pay will be deadly.

See that berm over there,
that gas station,
that rest area so pastoral,
pull in, dial up and jabber away.

The worst part is, 
quite often a call 
on a cell phone,
kills the others you hit. 
Taking out women, children, babies,
fathers, husbands and brothers,
innocent victims of your techno delight,
all for the simplicity of finding out 
What time dinner is? 
What you need to pick up on the way home? 
or just to relay that you will be late!! 
And most definitely "you will be late,"
as in the late Mr.-Miss or Mrs. Deceased.

Distracted driving far too often detracts your
attention from all the cars aroud you and it
 can subtract and redact you from the census
of all the living souls you left behind.

The most tragic and appalling cell phone
deaths that I perrsonally witnessed was 
a car that held a driver who was using a cell
 phone and most likely was dialing a number 
when he ran his vehicle up under and beneath
a eighteen wheeled semi all the way uo to the 
back of his cars hood. His passenger also 
suffered a horrific demise as they both were
burning to death  while trapped beyond help
beneath that truck. I drove on by shaking my 
head sadly because it happened across the 
median strip on the other side of the freeway
but the most appalling thing I noted was a 
large group of families and other gawkers on
a bridge just 70 feet or so above the crash.

All of them had their cell phones out 

and they were filming the incineration 

of these two men as well as allowing 

their children to view the carnage.
Please think of your cell phone as a 

suicidal device whenever it is used 

in a vehicle that you are diving.
Too many poor souls have killed themselves 

over wanting to talk to someone or read 

a text at 70 miles per hour and they 

are no longer able to talk to anyone anymore.
