Tech Support Woe (formerly “The Call Center’s Lament”)

I wrote this poem for a contest at work one time. I was working at a call centre, it was the holidays, and the supervisors were pretty desperate for anythong to keep morale up. I don’t know who came up with the idea, but this was my submission.

There once was a woman reviled
by her TV screen as it tiled
she called tech support
and gave this retort
“this problem is getting me riled”

For something off the top of my head, I guess it’s not bad, and it won the contest, so I guess there’s that!
