Robo Manners

Topic: HumorPoetry

If sales calls drive you bonkers too,
I have some options just for you.
The following have now been shown,
to restore our dial tones!

I ask what time they will be home;
the number of their private phone;
tell them I/'/ll call back instead.
and what time do they go to bed?

I love when they/'/re taking surveys.
I explain todayís the day
I canít converse with robo-minions.
My wife said I canít have opinions.

Donations usually come next.
I agree to write a check.
Most will usually hang up
when asked what time theyíll pick it up.

Ask them if they live alone.
Have a firearm in their home?
Their area code and zip code zone.
Do they own, or do they rent?
Can they name our president?
Whatís their birthdate? Can they spell
their mothers maiden name as well?

For those who want a speedy end
to robo-calls I recommend
we keep a whistle near our phone.
I/'/m certain eardrums have been blown.

I donít know what these folks expect.
Except they wonít be getting it.

The mother/'/s maiden name line made my chuckle! I hate sales calls but when they are, on the rare occasion, made by actual humans, I try to be as patient as possible. They/'/re people too, and I wonder what circumstances brought them to this kind of job that must be miserable most of the time. That said, asking for their info back would be a funny way to start a conversation for sure!

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
