Lunch with a friend
Conversation flows
A ring of the phone
Our talking froze

She chooses to answer
I look annoyed
Our time together
Has now been destroyed

I stare at my plate
While being ignored
Five minutes pass
I'm getting bored

Was the call business?
No, just idle chatter
Derailing the mood
For an irrelevant matter

Keeping my calm
An impossible task
a little respect
Is all that I ask

Tethered to tech
Disconnecting us all
Harming a friendship
All over a call
