Raptured

If you call me today,
The phone will just ring until
You hear my recorded voice asking for a message,
For I'm in a meeting today.

If you send me an email,
You shan't get a timely answer,
Just an automatic reply,
For I'm in a meeting today.

If you stop by my cubicle,
Needing information, you won't get it,
My chair will be empty,
For I'm in a meeting today.

If the sun shines brightly
Outside in the dark blue June sky,
And a soft breeze blows, and birds sing,
I'll never know it--for I'm in a meeting today.

If the world outside would suddenly stop,
Calls cease, computers crash, everyone raptured,
It will be news to me--
for I'm in a meeting today.

And if you think that time flows unceasingly,
A relentless river marching at a brisk pace into the future,
Well, brother, I must tell you, you're dead wrong, for
I'm in a meeting today.
