Switchboard, how can I help you?

Switchboard, how can I help you?

A Poem by andrew mitchell

Love
it’s all about
connection
connection
connection
until….

the line
is severed.

Hello
Hello
Hello
Where alt thou love?

Switchboard, my love
has been disconnected.
Hold the line please.
Connecting you now.

Sorry this line
is not available.
Please try another option,
we are receiving heavier
traffic than usual, please hold.
This line Is currently engaged.

Switchboard, I can’t get through.
Sorry sir, your love has been blocked.


When the love you had
has flown away.

well written andrew, though I wonder how many of our youngish poets will connect with a switchboard :)))
now days it is more likely to read, you are not connected, check your internet connection and try again.
