She said she'd phone back

She said she’d phone back
But will she?

Before I got through to her
I was dealing with an automated call service

Such service.

Who was the automaton
Me or it?
I did as I was told
Waited when told to wait
Punched in the buttons
On request

Waited

And waited

Finally got through
To someone real

Hard voice
But practical enough

Couldn’t find the info she needed
To progress my query

I’ll need to call you back
She said
But will she?

It’s been nearly twenty years now.
