Logging out

Good old Facebook

Leaves you struggling to face your book

Or is it the language on Twitter

Which makes you shiver and dither?

 

My weak will makes me decide

To flow with the wrong tide

Then a Messiah suddenly appears

And I have got to tidy my affairs

 

‘Your best bet’ to me he says

‘Is to log out of this space’

Come apart and rest awhile

Or you might just well fall apart

 

There is this place of all places

With luscious greens and friendly faces

Where you can recollect and reconnect

Better than on LinkedIn or any other connect

 

It was truly as he said

I will never forget all that I heard

‘Friend, what are you doing romping nigh

When you should be flying high?

 

Burning all that time on the internet

Instead of building a lovely nest

Make a statement if you please

Work well and say cheese

 

Balance your accounts daily, don’t delay

Not just your business but your way

Make thee well the value of little things

They will bring you manifold blessings.’

 

It’s left to me when all is said and done

To begin to cool off or to burn
