Play now, like, or post a photo

Of your cousin; looks like Frodo

Sexy girls who want to meet

At least it gets them off the street

 

Save the world with a click.

Lots of causes, take your pick.

Feel the pride of millions fed.

Did you know your neighbors dead?

 

I like Jesus, I like dope

Share a pic of Justin… nope!

That skank from school, she stayed so thin.

I’ll just remove her as a friend.

 

Excitedly I scroll my feed.

A daily fix of hope, I need.

Without fail, I have to sigh

A post to share or I will die.

 

Everything in moderation

Is what we’re lacking as a nation

Put down the mouse and hug someone

It shouldn't matter….. Anyone.

I am a man with one distinguishing manner. I view life as a nonstop roll by circus. Whatever my senses signal to my brain, it is received as humor.

There is some serious irony in this diddy about social media. The last stanza rings true as the requiem bell...............and it's cool. But like @tlhopkinson said. I like Jesus, I like dope?????????????? Badabadabadabada.....bloop............

The "I like" reference is some of the different "likes" I see on Face Book. Everybody likes something. All are things I've seen over the years.

 @admin you need to share this on Facebook lol... but really. I love how this is hilarious but also really meaningful too.. is the best FB poem I've read to date. Even though that Frodo line is great :) .. this is my favorite stanza as well-

"I like Jesus, I like dope

Share a pic of Justin… nope!

That skank from school, she stayed so thin.

I’ll just remove her as a friend.

Perfection; my greatest strength and weakness.

@Forgewright  Stop talking to yourself. Thanks for the comments guys. This really ain't so hard! Of course I quit my job and am waiting another week for my nephew to give me the thumbs up to join him in southern ohio for some real work. so.....lots of downtime.

I like the pressure plus I am the great procrastinator. I remember in my twenties, my father was visiting me. I was writing a check to pay my electric bill. His favorite thing to do was tell me to do something when I was doing it. "Make sure you pay your electric bill" I stopped writing the check and and put it in a drawer, waiting until they shut it off before I went to the company and paid cash. Quirk you say, weirdo, whatever. I had the hardest head around. I always did things my way no matter how much grief it caused me just because of the pleasure I got from doing it my way. I have sabotaged so much of my life being that way.

Ok, work ahead.....
