They’re calling a meeting and said I should go
but I’m stuck at home, there’s a virus you know.
They said not to worry, we’re going to Zoom,
it will all be on-line, you can stay in your room.
It was all new to me and I’m sad to relate
I mucked up the passcode and joined them all late.
Then I could see them and they couldn’t see me,
I had no idea where that button should be!
It was just bad luck that my phone chose to ring,
it gave me a fright and I dropped the damn thing!
I felt like a coot when the sound went all mute,
they tried to explain, but it wouldn’t compute.
By then I had something important to say,
but the time had run out and they’d all gone away.
I promised that next time I’d have it all righted.
They said not to bother, I’d not be invited.
