The Phone Call

(me favorite song plays)

‘Hello’, I say curiously.

‘Hello this is your conscience,’

The voice on the other side says.

In the old days there was onephoneperhousehold.

Now everyone gets to have one.

Me conscience checks in upon me regularly.

In olden days of yore there was oneringforall.

Now everyone gets his pick of ring.

Mine is none of your business

And yours is none of mine.

Self disassociated from community.

Me conscience calls but I don’t

Understand what he’s saying.

There’s a bad connection,

Communication breakdown in the

Public and private squares.
