Hasty & Superficial
I’ve written this before,
A point of view I can’t discard
And never lose.
In this case, I might call it Facebook Blues.
It’s all about the “Like.”
A poet or contributor of any sort
Who spends a precious effort
Fashioning, engendering, producing with his heart
And every other body part,
The aim to share,
Wants dearly to see evidence that you out there
Nice to see one’s liking -
Pleasant - nothing more.
Affable and friendly, but with shortage of, disappointingly
Engagement and participation,
Feeling not that one is seen
On, in and in between
Each line, each stroke,
Each application neither joke nor smoke
But stoked with every second’s sweat.
Do you get it?
Will you change, go deep,
Steep yourself in what’s before you
And react with depth’s sincerity?
Once again, I thank you,
