The clock ticks on aimlessly so
Waiting and hoping, oh why donít I know?
My stomach turns, and palms they sweat
Some kind of sick joke, a thoughtless bet

Render me speechless, mouth agape
Will this machine decide my fate?
I gave all I have, no more I can do
But sit here and wonder, B1 or C2?

Pupils widen, hair stands on edge
Mountain dew or citrus wedge?
Reach down in my pocket for cold metal wage
The robot sucks in, no thank you is paid

Finger tips so cold and dark
Pressing the button, making my mark
Forever is here, no turning back
Shit, I wanted a Twix not a Kit Kat!

@woalook100 and smartie99
It looks like neither of you have been on these pages since September 2008 (or there-abouts).

Welcome back! It's good to see you here!

And woalook100: I've felt just that way many times at the hospital vending machine, and even though I could swear I pushed the right buttons, the freakin' thing keeps giving me the wrong stuff.

Good piece!
