Oh My Dearest Telegraph

At the end of a recent journalism exam I took, students were asked to write a poem about the telegraph for extra credit. In the two or three minutes that I had left by the time I reached the end, this is what I came up with:

     Oh my dearest telegraph
     What abominations you let me have
     Tis all because of you
     The internet devours my afternoon

     How dare you my dearest telegraph
     You've put cancer in my brain, you have
     According to my doctor's note
     I'm being kill by my cellular phone

     So long my dearest telegraph
     What little importance today you have
     It's not over you today's children hath fought
     It is but you who'll soon be forgot
