“You are *Forty-Seventh* in the queue -please hold.”


Are you buffering?
Waiting, suffering?
Are you always holding on the line?
Frequently call-waiting,
Hesitating (leading to over-heating)
Or, forever using that call-back thing?

It’s all just a delay
To getting things done
A diversion sign at the roundabout
A dead black fly in your Chardonnay;
A rocket flight to the Moon
Via the heart of the Sun
The worst choices you take
Without a doubt

But, when all the queuing is
Behind you
And your turn is next
Then it’s time for fun
Time to sing and shout

The Moral of this tale:
Don’t be vexed;
You’ll soon be
