Sad Story - Poem by Jonny Brackney

i called a friend,
i called a lady,

even tried a
woman.

none of them ever answer.

drove 60 miles
waiting,
talking myself dizzy.

finally,
the dumb phone sang
yanking me from a daze.

hello? i chirped
in my friendliest
tone.

-'Yes...
is this...
Mr. Brackenree? '

    Like it a great write. Enjoyed it. A great poem.
    May i invite you to read my new poem called,
    For Paul Backburn. Its about a man who spent
    twentyfive years in prison for a crime he did not do.
    He was fifteen when they locked him up.
    Its a true story.
