#13 - Post-Apocalyptic Advertising

With flood and famine ever present threats,
 it pays to be prepared – don’t you agree?
So in these troubled times you need to get
 a phone that knows it’s way around the sea

and one that tastes good roasted for your tea.
But, wait! Its limits aren’t exhausted yet!
This creature has a lifetime guarantee –
and buying one won’t leave you trapped in debt.

Plus, if you haven’t eaten it, you can
retain the lobster as a pet or chum.
With grip much stronger than a mortal man,
You Fallout shelter tins will spring undone!

(Though, to be fair, it has one little quirk:
The telephone itself just doesn’t work.)
