A little poem, to capture the stress of the holiday season–and every other season–on social media. I tried to match the rhythm to the incessant nature of the subject matter. Enjoy and thanks for coming by to read!
Entirely too much time on Twitter;
Ingesting, excessively, Instagram;
Linking-in links in a chain of glitter;
Facing off Facebook with who I am;
Nearly collapsing the apps that grasp me;
Ceaselessly seeking release and fun;
Comparing my perils and flukes and foibles;
Endlessly friending, till day is done;
Plenty will view and believe my profile;
Plenty will rate me with five gold stars;
But amidst all this dizzying image spinning,
I haven’t a notion of who they are.
