a frivolous poem for a Monday night on the internet

I cannot take seriously
those who enthusiastically
invoke Reason as a proper
noun, someone with a phone number.
Go ahead, pull out your smart phone
(preferably when you're alone)
and try to give Reason a call.
You may find that Reason has call-
waiting, or too much voice mail.
Attempts to leave a message fail.
But, sure, you can tell me with pride
Reason is only on your side.
