I have been on the phone for the IRS,
Waiting on hold, this government agency is such a mess.
If I did not know I would envision many desks with a phone on each,
Handling customers with respect, but out of reach.
I waited for an hour and finally got through,
The lady asked me questions, put me on hold and did a review.
And then we got disconnected, my fault or hers?
How often does that happen, do the fates concur.
Is it a conspiracy that if a question is to hard the hang up doth come,
Is the IRS think we are frustrated to death and probably dumb.
They give us a name but who knows if it is true, a corresponding number, maybe out of the blue.
Why not an office like Social Security where we can get easy reach,
That would be novel, like a beautiful succulent peach.
But no there is mystery in the cloud and the phone line goes where?
I am scared this blog will be read by those in power, but at this point I do not care.
