Customer Service

by Robert Candler
(Oklahoma City, OK)

Customer service,
Before and after the sale,
A company's face.

Customer service.
When expectations aren't met,
Who do we turn to?

Customer service.
Waits in electronic queus
In search of answers.

Customer service.
Disinterested people
Will route you elsewhere.

Customer Service.
Disinterested people
Offer 'canned' reasons.

Customer service.
Tiresome inconvenience
Increases your ire.

Customer service.
Is what you hope to receive
Worth the anguish?

Customer service.
They know you are frustrated.
Frankly, they do not care.

Customer service.
Businesses talk about it
To get your money.

Customer service
Seems to be disappearing.
Are you guilty too?
