„I have just hung up; why did he telephone? I don’t know…
O! I get it – I talked a lot and listened little.

Forgive me, Lord, it was a monologue and not a dialogue.
I explained my idea and did not get his;
Since I didn’t listen, I learned nothing,
Since I didn’t listen, I didn’t help,
Since I didn’t listen, we didn’t communicate.

Forgive me, Lord, for we were connected, and now we are cut off.”
