Regular Poem: Phoning It In

21 Apr

I’m calling to say
I’m phoning it in.

No, I’m not phoning
to say I’m
calling in.
I’m just informing you
by phone
I’ll be phoning it in tonight.

I thought you had the right
to know

No, I haven’t decided what percentage
of me
you can count on
quite yet;
I just know that
it won’t be 100–
probably somewhere between
50 and 80.

No, of course I don’t want you
to apply vacation or sick leave.
I’m not vacationing,
nor am I sick.
I’m just

phoning it in.

Everyone else is, too?
I guess
it’ll be a

conference call.
