Soup Mail

What can I say
I don't receive it everyday 
Though I never check it 
But once a year 

So how would I know 
 If It was really there 

Just like on face book as well
I never check my messages 
Which irks my daughter to no end

Though I truly must confess
This is also the way of my house
As I watch the messages scroll

 And I wonder should I answer it 
By the time I figure out if I should 
That number is surely gone from sight 
It is no big thing to me though 

My older sister used to go crazy
She would say how am I suppose
To get a hold of you in an emergence

I'd say because I hear the message    

I most always keep the ringer off
Then I had the see through phone
So I just watched the lights go off 

Maybe I will check my soup-mail 
more often then not 

I wrote this last night because I checked my soup-mail and seen there was 5 messages ;}

    Ha ha, Debbie..I have almost an aversion to telephones too... cell phones, especially. if I don't have to answer it right then, I'll get it later...I'm terrible. Enjoyed reading your very interesting and well written poem tonight, and thanks for the kind comment. Always, Annalise

    You sound a lot like me - I do not answer the phone unless it is someone I know.

    sometimes id like to be far away from society, but then id be remiss, dodging family ties, just a part of this..... but family cant be denied:)

    I very seldom get soup mail...but when I do, Poetrysoup sends me an email to let me know. As for messages on FB...I always answer them promptly. Mostly it's family with a private message. I like your poem. ps: I turn my ringer off my phone quite

    I check mine when I remember but at my age (77) it's definitely hit and miss! LOL Love ya... Jack xox

    No Debbie, I didn't find anything funny about you not answering your soup mail. I think it shows al lack of consideration on your part. Please know I am soooo yanking your chain here. The best of us get caught off guard sometimes. You have a blessed day. :)

  1. Date: 9/27/2012 5:33:00 PM
