AN EVENING CALLER

AN EVENING CALLER

About ten-twenty in the evening this guy calls,

I guess he was just lonely and reminisced…

Though I was an operator who didn’t know it all

He talked about  things hidden in mist!

He called back and kept on talking

About those life and times…

When he did more than count money

working in various climes.

The guy sounded so lonely

I let him talk on…

Until he said what he wanted to say

Finally put the receiver down.
