A missed chance...
It was a quarter to nine
on a wintry evening, cold and clear
I sat curled up on my love seat
a book in hand, a glass of water near
Reading, I didn't notice a thing
until with a sharp ring
the phone snapped me out of my fantasy world
"Hello?" I said, my mind not quite open to news
"Hi," he answered and mumbled along,
something about a program and 2001
I already forgot most of what he told me
except for the gist of his speech
talking about Weeds he obviously
tried to give me a sales pitch
Not really there yet, with him and his talk,
I reacted impatiently, as often, in a bit of a fog
"The more weeds you have, the more often you have to mow,"
he pointed out, reasonably so
"Please take me off your list," said I
my voice rising quite a bit too high
"Yes, ma'am" he replied and I hung up,
only to wish I had been with it, after all
'cause - with a grin - I suspected discussing weeds at length
we both could have had a ball.
The moral of the story is:
give the solicitor a chance
you might find sudden bliss.

|Nice little poem and it makes sense if you are masochistic. I agree, and do, what Scetchman Ron said and does.|

|I got tired of giving them a chance
I did what ~E~ sent me. If you pick up
and you hear no voice, immediately start
pushing the # button 7 or 8 times. It confuses the computer and guess what. I havent't got any of those calls in 3 days. YIPeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I love to converse with solicitors. They love it too! (i have no money..so no fear of me buying stuff from them, y'know?)
