SAMPLE POEMS:

Five Thousand Friends

NEW! Here’s Heather reading “Five Thousand Friends”

Just six clicks away
from five thousand “friends.”

No clue what today is,
or what’s on CNN.

I should really get dressed,
Or at least shave my pits.
But with all these new friends,
I can’t stop the clicks.

Glued to the screen
like some kind of affliction.
Welcome to Facebook:
the world’s
latest addiction.

Lolita

Her name is Lolita.
She’s got Double D’s.
She’s bold and she’s beautiful;
She’s eager to please.

She’s got five hundred friends;
She’s charming and wise.
They flock to her photos;
She’s so easy on the eyes.

Oh so lovely, dark, mysterious.
But that’s not just a fake tan.
That’s one fake old photograph.
That’s one smart old man.

  1. Hello dear Heather,
    Lolita here.
    My double D’S missing.
    No sticking out rear.

    No eyes you would swim in.
    My tan lily white.
    An expanding waistline,
    Means trousers too tight.

    Charming, I think not.
    Skin rough as sand.
    And friends here on Facebook,
    I count on one hand

    Smart then? Well maybe,
    As one thing is true,
    Following butterflies,
    Led me to you.

  2. Hello dear Heather,
    Lolita’s returned,
    As without an alias,
    Advances all spurned.

    No lighthearted banter,
    Or pics of soft porn,
    No suggestive comments,
    To give me the horn.

    It’s sad and it’s lonely,
    If no one replies,
    So is it a wonder,
    I choose a disguise,
    To raise my esteem?
    And only to flirt?
    If no one’s the wiser,
    And no one gets hurt?

    In truth though it’s sad,
    If I have to rely,
    On an oversized bossom,
    To get a reply.

    So reality beckons,
    Back to the man,
    With skin rough as sand,
    And a lily white tan.

    Cos friends here on Facebook,
    Are plenty, not few,
    Good friends. Not strangers,
    And one of them’s you.

    I’m happy, entangled,
    And although we’ve not met,
    I’m glad I’m caught up,
    In your butterfly net.
    :-)

  3. I don’t know If I said it already but …Great site…keep up the good work. :) I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, :)

    A definite great read..Tony Brown

  7. THEN I GO FOR FACEBOOK
    I AM A DOCTOR BUSY WITH MY PATIENTS AND BOOKS
    SOMETIME IDEAL AND FREE I GO FOR THE FACEBOOK
    DEAR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES WHOM I WANT TO LOOK
    TO MY SURPRISE THEY ARE ALREADY ON THE HOOK
    SOMEONE IS UPDATING HIS STATUS AND
    SOMEONE IS TELLING WHAT HE LIKES TO COOK
    ONE IS WRITING ON THE ANOTHER’S WALL
    OTHER ONE IS ASKING SOMEONE TO PLEASE MAKE A CALL
    FACEBOOK FACEBOOK IT IS NOW EVERY WHERE
    AND IN THIS CYBERSPACE YOU CAN FIND YOUR FOES AND DEARS

  8. I love these poems. Your humor is awesome. The look/feel of your blog is really great. It’s definitely evolved. Having readings right on the blog is great idea. Congrats on all the interest in your work. You deserve it.

  9. Facebook…I am still laughing. I deleted myself and was amazed at the uproar it caused. How come nobody cared while I was on FB but then had so much to say when I went off? I am back on even though one of my relatives told me my posts are boring. LOL She may be right! Love your site and will come again. Hugs, pat

  11. Hey Heather,
    So nice to find a kindred spirit at last! :) I relate to your FB poems. This year alone, I activated and de-activated my FB profile many times….I began to call it “CRACKBOOK” in the end. Ugh! Am feeling much better the past couple of months being off it but sometimes I am so tempted to re-activate, just to see what my “friends” are up to!
    Okay, I go now to peruse the rest of your amazing blog!
    MUAH!
