Good news can be mistaken –
phew, it’s okay, but it’s not
but bad – terminal – a look that can’t feign
you just know..
The technician called the boss over,
but I already knew
he came to the counter –
“….. It’s had it ….
…much more cost-effective to get a new one,
I’lI get that organized.”
Truth speaks what proof of purchase hasn’t yet
“ it’s more than a year old …. outside warranty ..
The tone is stern – very – but not in dispute,
“ I don’t care about a piece of paper
I’m not having anyone say they bought a machine from me
and it only lasted 15 months
you’re having a new one. No charge.”
