With the increasing focus on social media I felt this poem has some relevance. What do you think?
… Let’s talk a while
Let’s engage in conversation
We’ll converse and cogitate
With zeal and animation
… Can you put it in a tweet?
Can you make it short and sweet?
Be brief, abbreviate, concise
Is just as nice..
My conversations you do thwart
I have no retort, that’s short.
There’s nothing that I want to say
In such a cut, truncated way…
… But real life talk is such a pain
It tasks and hurts my shrivelled brain..
My virtual world gives such a buzz
I don’t know why you chafe and fuss…
… Social media’s not up my street
It’s making me feel obsolete
Of trying to talk I’m getting tired
My conversations’s no longer required…
