Title: The call centre blues

There was I just hanging on the line,
listening to 'musak' electronically sublime,
but then, and much to my dismay
a little voice I heard,
"hello sir, can I help you,
do you need a friendly word?"
"No, go away'" I mumbled, "I'm
quite happy as I am,
I know most of the words to this
and no longer give a damn.
So leave me, let me float away
on clouds of sylvan grace,
for I've quite forgot what grievance
brought me to this lovely place."
