Social Networking

There are parts of social media
I just don’t get at all
The bits of social behaviour
That really make us fall
From what it is to be human
A social breed or race
When some behave so hideously
A networking disgrace

For give someone a notebook or
A phone or some device
And Facebook or Twitter access
They might be not so nice
For something in our brain thinks when
There’s distance then involved
That etiquette and empathy
Can then just be dissolved

That things that would never be said
Can be uttered in a text
Or on a Facebook status, tweet
Good grief! Whatever next!
And then there is the culling as
Though people are like birds
Not that birds should be culled anyway
It’s really quite absurd!

So be careful how you network
What you say and what you do
Be considerate on Facebook
In your texts, on Twitter too
And think how you would like to be
Treated so carefully
And act to others in a way
That you would have them be

The Bully

There was no meaning in his soul
And in his heart a searing hole
And his eyes a vacancy
In his spirit lost transparency
A fragile state that cried with hurt
Yet masked with words to disconcert
And deeds that punished for his pain
Lashing out in anger to kill and maim
Where consequence concerned him not
His victim’s lives were left in knots
Yet underneath he still cried out
To want the love he had forgot
To extend to those he had destroyed
With the bullying he had employed
