Worse Than A Steal


My phone rings

not a time

many a time

a convenience  thereto

the number being reflected

I rush to pick the call

the ring stops

I look at the number

seems to be very familiar

last, I know the caller

who calls me when in need

else,  never calls

not even to be courteous

such a pretext I do hate

such an action is hard to rate

most are similar

become familiar

when they require

otherwise, keep away

a clevercallness they feel

I think in a variant

it is absolute deceit

worse than a steal.
