A cleaning crew began its sweeping
When others in the office left;
A cleaner heard a cell phone beeping,
Had slipped into a couch’s cleft.
She groped it out and thought to answer;
But didn’t since she thought she’d chance her
Job and then what would she do so
She walked away and let it go.
When, later on, it still was ringing,
She answered it and someone said,
“Your stock will rise tomorrow, Ed.”
And then hung up.  She started singing.
Had thought to phone the SEC’s
Hot line.  Thought, “No. Kids' college fees.”
