(this poem does not appear in Won’t Be Long)

 Over the coffee cold in the coffee cups
Over the conversation cold in the conversation cups
Why do these people call
They want help
They want an answer
They want solutions
Everyone behaves irrationally
The most intelligent
The most rational
They all do the dumbest things
Thoughtless things
Irrational things
So what do you conclude from that
Everyone behaves irrationally
Is there any other conclusion
Hey, this coffee is cold
