We’re surrounded by so many things

And of all these things

It’s the telephone I hate most

It rings and rings

Rarely do I answer

If I can’t think of person who should be calling

There’s no reason to pick it up

Besides, the whole conversation thing

I’m generally not in the mood

Don’t get me wrong

I enjoy talking to people

But only when I want to

Is that too much to ask?

Not for this surly old bastard

  1. Ahihihi … I know the feeling, believe me. I always think they can just leave a voicemail, or just text for crying out loud. But then, I do make an effort to reply back, because you just never know … 😉
