There Is No Emoticon For How I Feel


I don’t swallow hollow “Follows”,

Go take a hike, Oh shallow “Likes”.

I’ll take the lesser travelled road

and despise the Bloggers’ Code:

I’ll Like you if you Like me“,

Yes, who gives a fuck for Quality

when you’re chasing Quantity?

This Quest for superficial Popularity

is a sign of Emotional Immaturity,

or just an advertising ploy,

go and try some other boy.


Who are all these “Facebook Friends”?

(Fairweather Strangers to the End.)

On my hands I can count my real Friends,

the Few on whom I can depend

in this Age of Information

where I still feel trapped by Isolation,

for despite the ease of Communication

I still can’t get a Conversation!

I’m lucky to get a line or two

in response (and forget about punctuation!)


True, I can talk to old Friends far-away,

but few of them have much to say,

now that we live far apart.

Still I keep them in my Heart,

but they lead their lives,

I lead mine,

Now I’m just a Tag on their Timeline.


Don’t make the mistake

of expressing an Opinion,

thoughtful critical response

belongs in a Museum.

Just use the emoticon for “Frown”

Thumbs up! Thumbs down!

That’s Life in the Virtual Colosseum.

So B4 I accept your Friend Request,

can U pass this simple Test:

If I changed households, one fine day,

would you help me move,

if you weren’t paid?
