One Phone Call

One phone call
Made today
To figure out
Your school schedule
Is not enough

Is not
A contribution
To our life

One phone call when the house is a mess
One phone call when four kids have asked for music lessons
One phone call when meals need to be planned
One phone call when the budget needs to be reconciled
One phone call when the dog could use a walk
One phone call when the workshop needs to be overhauled
One phone call when the music room needs to redone

One phone call
Made today
Is not enough

It’s not enough
For today

It’s not enough
For the future

It’s the path of least resistance
Shrinking away from life
Instead of rising up to meet life

It’s lazy
It’s selfish
It’s cowardly

And it’s definitely

Not enough
