It's a Facebook Kind of Day (Isn't that every day?)

It's a Facebook Kind of Day (Isn't that every day?)

A Poem by Mary
"

Ok friends, I admit it: I really enjoy Facebook! so this is my tribute to the cliches we have all come to know and love. Feel free to add a stanza or two, have fun!

"

Coffee’s brewin’! Breakfast’s ready

Logging in to fb news

Screen’s a glowing- click the icon

Hoping I won’t get the blues

 

Fb login pw stronger

Are there messages for me?

Memories from 2 years ago

Show me how it used to be

 

Scroll down scroll down, puppy pictures!

Cute and funny photo fare

Type Amen cuz I love Jesus

Share this post to prove I care

 

Ooo! A test to know my angels

Good to know she’s got my back

What does the color purple mean?

DIY? I can’t do that!

 

Wtf Is Donald singing?

Bernie’s busy counting votes!

Hillary is text-deleting

Did you see those dancing goats?

 

Talking pugs and grumpy kitties

Lol! they’re here to stay!

“T-Rex Tuesday”, “Throwback Thursday”

It’s a Facebook Kind of Day

 

Ty.  Like and share or 27 kittens will be run over by a truck

I've been writing some heavy stuff these days and before I go completely mad I needed to lighten my load a bit. Feel free to add to this poem. Hope you enjoy it ;-)

well, it is lighter in the sense of humor of it...but it is a dark truth to me. We are so caught up in the texting and facebook addictions...face to face contact is almost nil, we have all of these friends we don't even know...FB users are told to like everything on Facebook...

do we like everything? i think not, or that we should not..maybe people could get together a bit more and speak out on important issues...

this is clever and thoughtful...i especially like the 4th and 5th stanzas...

This is unusual and I love it. I don't love all this stuff about Facebook, but you've definitely nailed it, & I can feel your enjoyment, even if I find some of this stuff to be annoying when I'm on FB! To me, this is the epitome of celebrating the basic stuff of life, the things we all share in our everyday, & this is the kind of poetry I most prefer to read & write. Now I need to go read something of your more serious stuff, so I can see why this is lighter fare for you! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

Ha! Very funny and true! Great flow, rhythm and rhyme to this poem. Facebook does demand attention-constant attention. I had to drop out because of the time drain. It is amusing though. I will share this and save the kitties Mary- Lol!:)

This is hilarious! Facebook provides distraction but only if you want to be distracted.. I enjoy watching the videos as well and the gifs which are the running trend these days ☺
All in all, a fun write indeed! Loved it ☺

I loathe Facebook (and all social media for that matter!) but I like the humour in your poem. You have captured the pure nonsensical side of Facebook and its ilk perfectly.
