Mayor of My Phone

The first three letters of my name are “Mar.”
In New York it’s pronounced like Apple’s “A.”
But California made it rhyme with “care”
(and though I’m no old horse, it stayed that way).
When voicemail’s left for me by cell, what’s there
addressing me, amuses me each day.
No programmer was influenced or bribed,
but “Mayor” is the way my name’s transcribed.

(Ottava Rima)
