Sexually explicit text messages
Oversexed! Indecent!
Spreading like wildfire
Is there no escaping it?
A total stranger or someone of familiarity

Old and young alike, middle aged too
Men, women and those transgendered 
Everyone’s finger busy at work
Senators, congressmen, and the commoner too
Public spaces! Private sphere!

Unwanted messages
Unrequited proposal
“I wish you were here with me”..., is that what I think it is on your phone child?
Horrified parents
Secretive teenagers

Obsession or is it admiration?
Humorous or repulsive?
Illegal in some jurisdiction
Is it a feature of modernity?
What is the solution? The answer lies within your fingers.
