Sad Email

I check my email
and nothing's there
not many have it
not many care

When someone responds
I want to cheer
it's a sad email
when nothing's there

I check my voicemail
and nothing's there
and many have it
not many care

When someone calls me
I want to cheer
it's a sad voicemail
when nothing's there

Fourty-two followers on my Twitter feed
Fourty-two must not be online when I need
Two thousand friends on Facebook and no likes when I post
that's a sad and lonely Facebook to read
indeed



Maybe I'll finish this another time
for now I'll let myself fall asleep
Maybe it doesn't matter that I make it rhyme
