No Birthday Call


I am not

going to waste my time

calling you for your birthday,

why in the hell

should I?

I figured why

should I call you?

You would just

talk about youself anyway.

Maybe you will

treat me with a

little more respect,

if we don't talk for awhile.

I'll give you a

chance to miss

hearing my voice.
