Social Media Life – Poem#28 – National Poetry Month

icons-640402_1920“Your social skills deplete
When you always make love with the keyboard
and ejaculate into the social media
nothing beautiful comes out
you are not creating life here”
Someone told me this as I was doing
exactly the same thing
“It is always the same old same old
till you turn old..” he said
He then gave me a big lecture;
There was a time when social skills
needed effort…..
You had to leave your home and walk to
the nearby market place….
Get into the library or the bakery, or the coffee shop
and there was your social media in its living form
There were no friend requests
There were just conversations that became friendships
Yes there were introductions,but
there were no emoticons, there were emotions
There were more handshakes and not pokes
Yes there were some pokes that resulted in arguments
and sometime even fists spoke at the end of a poke
and all was forgotten next day
You could not afford to block or unfriend
and still remain in that Social media
In old days Social media took effort
Not just heating the seat with your dumb ass
and farting your status messages
Your social skills deplete
When you always make love with the keyboard
and ejaculate into the social media
may be you should get out and meet people….. he said
and I looked at him
“Sure, Great idea let me first put a
status message that I will be away building
my social skills” and
he showed me his middle finger and walked out
