The Two Telephone Trick

Two telephones stand on the desk side by side,
Each blessed with its own sep'rate purpose and tone;
Identical colours, they nestle with pride
Beside the gilt picture from home.

A practical joker this April has found
A new way to spring a superlative sting;
He furtively swaps the two handsets around -
Now watch the confusion when one starts to ring!
