Micro Musings | It’s Simple

Ignorant Facebook. With its “It’s Complicated” relationship status. Doesn’t it know that anything that involves “us” is always complicated?

Trending Now

They say, Facebook and Twitter

Have become the new newspaper.

It’s true –

For here too,

Today’s trend is tomorrow’s tatter;

Only, much much faster.

Soon, they’ll go the way of a tabloid,

And we’ll treat them just as much – and avoid.

Here’s what I’m feeling like this minute…

Now, check out (and like) my new look…

See where I’m partying right now – with good friends…

And oh, here’s which page I’m on in which book…

Now, here’s me, ta-da, heading on a holiday – to Greece…

Have reached – and here are some pix I took…

Am now back in my native after a loooooooooong time…

Enjoying Mom’s dishes… See them… Ah, there’s no better cook…


So, while your friends are living it up,

You’re stuck in some hole-in-the-wall in some nook,

Moping over the rockin’ lives they lead,

While yours dazzles as much as that of a rook.

But before you go posting that status update –

Feeling depressed (along with bluish, sad smiley) – on Facebook…

Remember: there’s a reason that social network has ‘Face’ in its name,

Instead of being called something like ‘Soulbook’.
