The Rev at Lucky Duck..Scary!

You Don’t Say


Do I have a say in my Future?

“They” say that I do

but, frankly, whenever I open my mouth

“They” don’t seem to be listening.

That or there’s No-one even

answering the phones that day,

or else I become “.. Number.. 37..

in the Queue.

The recorded voice assures me though

that my call is important to “Them”

and may even be monitored

for performance evaluation

and training purposes!

But alas, none of the automated options

presented to me thus far

(“Dial.. NINE.. for.. enquiries

relating to.. rabid bat bite..”)

are ever applicable to my situation.

Grimly then I hunker down,

hang onto the phone,

wait for a human being..

  1. Is it not almost always the case; technological connections but no human connecting.
