When I started writing what you’ve called my ‘funny, clever’ poems about Facebook and social networking in 2009, I had NO idea they would be my most popular blog posts. I get nearly 500! views of these poems every week, and several textbook companies have bought one-time rights to use them for teaching purposes. Thanks so much for your interest in my work.
I am offering up a couple samples of my ‘Facebook Poems’ below, but I’d like to ask you to please show your support, and please buy a digital copy of my book Leap (just $2.99 on all e-readers) to access the poems. You’ll get many more poems in these collections in addition to the ones about social networking.

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:
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.
