My first iPhone

I got YouTube-addicted

I got YouTube addicted

“My life’s gone”, I predicted

It’s an in-built app in Android

Had it have never been created,

Google’s income would stay near void

How to get rid?

On ‘Rooting’ is my bid

I contacted a gadgets freak

He said my device may brick

My Redmi is six months old

Actually planned to exchange it after it’s four fold

Will this plan mould?

I phoned my friend

Who’s a developer at backend

‘Buy an iPhone’ – His recommend

“Because here, YouTube isn’t an in-build”

But iPhone is an overspend

But still there’s hope

I immediately made a grope

Over the internet

Never made such an effort as yet

They looked cool

Roommate stammered, “You’ll…

err…buy it fool?”

Nevermind

I’m kind

“Father, father, buy me an iPhone”

I asked in a hesitant tone.

“Okay son, definitely.

Use it delicately”

What!!? Did he just say yes?

What a bless!

“I promise dad.

My studies won’t go bad”

“Don’t brag it off.

Take care”

“Sure dad.” Call cuts off

iPhone 11 is the latest

“But XR is perfect”, peers suggest

Ordered

.

.

.

‘Ding dong’, I hear

I went near. “Who’s here? Courier?”

“Yes, please sign here”

Yayyy! My first iPhone!
