*Beep* You have reached the suicide hotline
Returning customers will please press one
If not, Congrats! On calling your first time,
Even though we know you’re rather glum.
Press three if in a public place with kids
Press four if you are just a troubled teen
Press five if you are standing on a bridge
Press six to register a drama queen.
Press eight right now if you’re about to jump
Press nine to get the therapist on call
Or please press ten to have your stomach pumped
If everything above applies, say, “All.”
No worries, help will soon be on the way,

This is actually a sonnet written in iambic pentameter. Don't know why it was put in the free verse category...
