6. Cross Check

'This is the final call,
Final call for -'
Alright!
I'm coming,
Just give me ...

 

One,
Last,
Call.

 

'-now ready,
And headed for-'

 

Such trouble,
To find out what I mean.
What to say? What to say?
And HOW to say it?

 

What one word can you choose,
When you've no more to say?

 

'Cross check.
Welcome aboard.
I'll be-'

 

Going fast!
Too fast
But shhh!
Take it slow! 
One last call
Just to let you know 
That I,

 

'Should be landing in-'

 

Anything,
Say anything!
Won't anything be better than
Nothing?

 

It rings,
It rings,
And you let it ring.

 

Pick up!
C'mon,
Now's not the time for
Talking to the machine,
However much 
I know you love
Message replays.

 

'This is-'

 

Me now,
It's me.
You no longer have to imagine
I'm there.
I'm here. 

 

Pick up,
Pick ME up,
Please!
One last time 
Before ...

 

'We're sorry to inform you,
This flight-'

 

'-has been forwarded
To the Vodaphone answer machine.'
