waiting for the phone to ring
Constantly checking the time

and another with his head in a cardboard box
Driven to distraction by the waiting
and at the same time
afraid to hear the result………….
The words “I’ve done it” shouted

and “I never doubted you”
And perhaps it is because of those very people
