Ode to iPhone 7

Your closest Apple Store is never that far away. As you stare, it calls out like the Sirens…”Buy our new iPhone 7. What’s your move? Well, I’ll tell you what I did… I wrote another poem!

You are simply the best
Your frame so cool and sleek
The magic in your guts
You’re now the one to beat

The camera’s the thing
Plus has even got two
I think it may be time
To send Elph* to the zoo

Old earphone jack is gone
Who cares that it’s lightning
Except when you’re charging
And tunes blare frightening

Still, here’s the solution
AirPods are invented
You can listen and charge
No looking demented

Now water-resistant
That would be great in rain
But don’t test the toilet
That could drive you insane

Jet black is cool and hip
Yet now you’ll have to wait
It may be Thanksgiving
Until it’s near your plate

I really love the Plus
It’s size giant and bold
All should own big phablets
(Be sure your hand can hold)

I am two steps behind
Just the iPhone 6 Plus
Should I buy the 7?
Is it really a must?

A thousand is a lot
Full RAM and Plus for me
Dollars don’t grow on trees
No tech in life is free

A trade-in program, wow!
Apple will give some bucks
To take your old iPhone
You cannot say that sucks

My old iPhone 6 Plus
Can fetch me some* smackers
To help me feel better
When eating my crackers

But I don’t feel the pull
There’s other gear I want
A DSLR lens
That can snap pics to flaunt

Hey, a new Apple Watch!
Don’t have one of them yet
And it’s waterproof too
I would not be upset

The 7 is mighty
That’s an obvious fact
If your iPhone is cracked
Tiny and three steps back

I’ve not pulled the trigger
My 6 Plus is just fine
I’m okay with old bling
I’ll pour myself some wine

So the choice is now yours
I think my move is clear
This phone is not for moi***
I’ll wait another year

*Canon Elph camera
**$225 for an iPhone 6 Plus in good condition with 128GB of RAM
*** Never say never.
