Are you listening?

When you’re down and feeling miserable

and your smiling face is sour,

when your back is round both shoulders fall

and your situation’s dour.


When the postman hasn’t been for days

and the family fails to call,

when the silent house becomes too loud

and the ghosts are in the hall.


Remember all those social rules

they’re really not absurd,

WhatsApp, Ring me, Skype me,

and let’s share a friendly word.
