I did as he said and got the word FAILED
I call back to the tech and naturally get another male
Again I try to tell this one my predicament
And he says, "That's what I do is hook you to the internet."
"You don't understand I don't have a phone line.."
"Oh they gave you to the wrong department.
I'll get someone to help you
Just hold on."
Forty-five minutes and two techs later
I was so mad I was bawling
And begged to cancel my membership.
"Don't cry dear we'll get you connected yet."
"You can't" was my reply.
"Yes we can just be patient."
"You don't understand. Nobody would listen to me.
I don't have a wire from the phone jack to the computer.
Can you understand?"
"No I've been telling you and the last three techs
You can't connect me because of that."
"Just get a wire and I'll get you connected to the internet."
"I don't have one
Or I would have hooked it up forty-five minutes ago.
Just let me cancel
I'm going to Kansas tomorrow.
"How long will you be gone?"
"Than I'll give you a free month."
"No!! Don't you hear me yet?"
"Alright I'll let you off," he said.
And finally removed my name or so I though.
Until I get back to Kansas
And walk into my bank.
"I'm glad to see you.
Do you know anything about this?"
And handed me A bill for $30.00
For my so called canceled internet.
I then relayed the story
But was unsure how
They had sent it to me personally
Using my bank' address.
When I arrived in Casper
The first thing I did do
Was contact the unnamed internet
Probably somewhere near a zoo.
I don't have the internet
Much less a TV
It's kind of like living
In another century.
But I always said I was born a century too late
Guess I'll just make do
And hope on my next trip to Kansas
The stage isn't too late.
