FACEBOOK-NATION

You’re on Facebook!
Mark Zuckerberg‘s invention
A world of friends, ‘smiling’ fiends and foes
Peddlers of tales – real and unreal
Chit-chatting on the roll
A thousand words wrapped in meaningless smileys
Hidden feelings, expressions, intentions
Dwell well with online shepherds
Beware! Wolves are among the flock!

You’re on Facebook!
A cubicle of relationships
Words far away from the mouth
A global hamlet in the global village
So affiliated to this network are some….
They’ve earned titles:
Misters Miss World’s latest addicts
‘What is on your mind?’
Does Facebook really care to know?

You’re on Facebook!
Your password is buried in your heart
Your contents chill their servers
Accepting friend requests is your task
Adding friends over friendship
Post after post read like newspapers
Thoughts provoked, reactions forsaken
As words turn to wounds
Facebook cares not….

Are you a user?
Or
You’re being used?
