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.

      every vote counts, thanks for the attention.

      1. Will definitely do so–thanks for the nominations.

  20. Man, I dance to Jai Ho! all the time. Also Tunak, Tunak, Tan by Dahler Mendhi, great stuff.

    Loved all these – but the one that brought chills was the dirty old dude masquerading. Parents, are you sure about all your kids’ “friends”? Sobering.

    Great work, found you at Jingle! Peace,

  22. those were a hoot!

  23. They are all great poems with so much truth in them. Really enjoyed reading this.

  24. Fantastic, light hearted and just what the doctor ordered! All very amusing and sadly true for most of us (hides all mirrors in shame). Thanks for sharing!

  25. Charming rhymes on our electronic fixations and social networking. Enjoyed much, Heather. Made my evening. as a matter of fact.

    Take it easy …

    1. Thanks so much–you guys made my evening too!

  29. I don’t often get a chance to laugh but this was simply great! Thanks for sharing.

    1. You don’t get a chance to laugh often? Please, come visit here more often!

  30. This is great. It’s so true how people on Facebook are more real than the people we look in the eye (between checking texts and statuses).

    Mine are here http://razzamadazzle.wordpress.com/2010/12/12/hobbies-passions-pastimes-entertainment/ and http://razzamadazzle.wordpress.com/2010/12/12/i-am/

  31. This good fun and it is good-natured. I enjoyed it and identified with much of it.

  32. “You’re a microbyte of madness,
    and sunshine, and fresh air.
    (And faster than FedEx,
    so I know you really care.)”
    love LOVE this

  33. Hi Heather

    I liked them all pretty intellectual 🙂

    The facebook title caught my eyes coz I just wrote one about FB myself

    Since I read yours here’s mine

  34. 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!
    xoxox

  35. 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

    1. Thanks for reading Pat–I’ll visit your site again soon, too.

  36. love the opening,
    masterful poem!
    🙂

  37. 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.

  38. 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

    1. Thanks for your poem, Dr. Khullar–now don’t be texting and operating, please!

  43. Hi Heather! I enjoyed the poem above about Facebook called Social networking. With your permission I make a note with it on my own FB-wall. I`ll leave a link to you there. Thank you again! Kari 😀

  44. 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

  45. 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.

    🙂

  46. 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.

  47. me either – I don’t know what I’d do with 5000 friends. humor at work.

  48. Those are fantastic!!! Laughed out loud at work here 🙂
