Hi Guys,

I've been writing 69-word, theme-based stories for the digital lifestyle magazine, The Brown Scooter, every month.

Read off and let me know what you think/feel :)

For whom the cell tolls!

This is a take off on a song by Metallica "For whom the bell tolls" (original lyrics)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Make his call from the hill in the early days
Constant error deep inside
Roaming cell, with (it) they run through the endless gray
A voice from the other end says, "Kaun hai be?"
For a cell, men would kill. Why? They do not know
Mobile cos test their pride
Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
Gone insane from the disconnection that they surely know

For whom the cell tolls
the battery goes down
For whom the cell tolls

Take a look to the sky before the network dies
It's the last time you will
Blackened roar, massive roar, fills the crumbling sky
Shattered reception fills his cell with a ruthless cry
Stranger now are his ears to this mystery
He hears the static so loud
Crack of dawn, all is gone except the bill to be
Now they see what will be, roaming charges bhi

For whom the cell tolls
the network goes down
For whom the cell tolls
