No need to call, we are working on the problem

No need to call, we are working on the problem

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

No need to call, we are working on the problem

 

 

to be continued

love pauses

for a commercial break

 

but after sixty-seconds

the station is discontinued

due to technicalities

 

and reckless behavior

you were wooed 

by better company

 

and I, a now defunct channel

scared strait

alone in my own waterway of tears

 

am looking for a reboot

for a show badly written

of plot, character, and heart.

Hello Jacob... I remember a series of woeful loves...
I was borne to be confused.... an accident waiting to happen.
The Secret is to be busy, and keep your Doors locked.
A "peep hole" and a Voice Box will do. The best Protection I ever saw
was in the Country where a Two-story house had a large SIGN that read--
** This House is guarded by a Rifle three days a Week *** You decide which three days !!!
Love is Dangerous and must always be Avoided at all Costs!!! There is a Price to Pay--
So Save your Money for a Rainy Day. Amen... gently, Pat

Guess things don't always go to plan. You need a new story

You don't always get what you want - I've got the Stones inside my brain now and they won't go away:)

really nice jacob. when the writers and actors don't love each other the show has no chemistry and the show gets canceled.
