What a Difference a Day Made

Clicked on click bait
Searched for–
Something earthshaking
Something brilliant
Something profound
Found suggestions already knew
Wasted time watching people
with whom I had nothing in common
that didn’t care a whit about
anything, but themselves
Life is a continual series
Of turns–sometimes
In wrong directions

Whipped Topics

Sock mending, deficit spending
On topic, whipped topping
Top of the morning
Mourning doves
In the pink, in the red, in the black
There’s more in the back
Green with envy
Green-eyed jealousy
Yellow-bellied cowards
Behind jalousie windows
Got the winter blues
Since the yawn of dawn
Big deals–compassion eaten
By moray eels
Sea monkeys
Animal magnetism
Pheromones, how to meet girls
X-ray glasses, chinchilla ranches
TV doctors, grim prognosis
Fatalists, philatelists
New family feudalists

Standing In a Stream (Of Consciousness)

Pale skin
Weak sunlight
Clocks without hands
Ships without rudders
Burgers without buns
Fun, beyond legal limits
Chicken Littles, peanut brittle
Log in, or get out?
Minor quibbles, put out to see
Oh, for the love of pancakes
Word of the year, word of the yawn?
Deflated Santas, compressors hissed no longer
Why? Because the congeniality well dried up
Have another cocktail weenie

Weird Ways With Words

Everyone hates to be put on hold. With horrible hypnotic background music. A place frequently called, had Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” playing in the background. I never made it to summer, fall, and winter–which was a good thing.

I’ve been on both sides of the issue, as a customer service rep, and as a customer.  On hold commercials for the companies’ products and services, were particularly despised.

“Your call is important to us. All of our representatives are currently with other customers. Please continue to hold and we be with you as soon as possible.”

What if a large corporation adopted something different–as follows?

We care because we care

We care because you’re there

We care because we care

We care–are you still there?

We’re there because we care

We’re sad when you’re not here
