Hey Sarah, Where's My Tri-Walls?

I had to go through the proper channels
Don't smoke so I wouldn't walk a mile for a camel
I was only ordering essentials
I was told by Ms. Liley, I don't have the credentials
I wanted to talk to our finance lady in person, not a phone call
So I asked her, hey Sarah, where's my tri-walls
I thought being a tech I could order direct
Ms. Liley told Sarah she was using money from a project
If I don't get what I need soon, shipping will begin to stall
Hey sarah, where's my tri-walls
What about the table scale I requested multiple times
Miss Liley's explaination leaves little reason or rhyme
She said there are enough scales at the facility that can be used
I've had to walk back to our big scale so much, I wore the soles off my steel toed shoes
This whole budget crisis is out of my control, I need brain electrolysis
So I scratched the table scale off my wish list
Some items I have begged for so many times I can't recall
I will settle for Sarah recovering my order of tri-walls

    Dealing with vendors can be horrific, Eutene. Especially now, when workers are trying so hard to keep their businesses afloat. Loved the poem, particularly your reference to "brain electrolysis" which had me laughing out loud. Great work!
