Long Message

I have learned to be concise
to the point, as it is most important
It has taken years of long messages
played on repeat as people speed;
no regard to the receiver
who is hard of hearing
from a foreign country
with a heavy accent,
which you hear at the greeting.
Quickly forgotten, it doesn’t matter,
you believe you are saving time
then they ask you to say it again.
They couldn’t hear you
“Please enunciate, you’re slurring
where are you from?
What did you say?”
Wasting the valuable seconds
you thought you had saved.
