Waiting

Seems as if I have waited
In line or on hold on the phone
Where blatant disrespect is shown

No longer fast service to show 
courteous appreciation
Just wait, wait, wait
Without consideration

Take a number
Life is what this is
Waiting for something
Or anything
Or nothing

Waiting for the other shoe to drop
Waiting to see
Waiting to hear
No longer is waiting a past time
Waiting is all the time

Take a number
Do not have a seat
Just wait

Stress high
I no longer know what 
I am waiting for
In this waiting game

When I get to the front of the line
The well has run dry
Or there’s a sign on the desk
Saying OUT to Lunch

My life is a take a number life
I have no reason to wait anymore
There is no wait left in me

The other shoe has fallen
The line is much too long
Time is up, the building closed
And now my time has come

I get on the line to talk with God
He asked me what I did while here

I waited, I exclaimed
I waited

I waited to be born
I waited in line to die

But most of all I waited...
On Christmas every year

Hello we are transferring your call ....

Hello, someone will be with you shortly
All of our representatives 
are busy helping other customers
Your wait time should be 
approximately twenty minutes

Hello, God
Can you hear me?

I waited..

I was next hello;     Buzzzzzz..
