Unemployment Hotline Hold Music
America is these three major chords
Strummed over and over again.
An upbeat tune interrupted
By a woman talking cheerily
About unemployment and the pandemic.
The grin flashing in the indignity
Of it all is worse than the indignity
Itself. No money without this melody.
I'll carry it with me all day,
Holding onto this hold music,
The first and possibly only
Notes I'll be given.
