I'll be ready in a second. Just hang on.
Just let me check my Facebook. It won't take long.
I need to see what my friends have to say.
I have to see what they're up to today.
Oh look! A dog chasing a squirrel around a tree,
and I love these giggling babies--they make me so happy.
Here's a picture of my dear Aunt Nell.
It's good to see she's doing so well.
Don't leave without me. Be patient and wait.
Don't worry. It's fine. We won't be late.
Politics, politics. Scrolling through all of that!
Haha! Another video of a funny cat.
Oh dear. Fred's in the hospital. Shirley's asking for prayers.
Show-off Cheryl. Posting vacation photos AGAIN. Putting on airs.
How pretty! Sunsets, butterflies, and a sunny beach.
It's nice to be in touch with those who are out of reach.
Yes, I heard you! I'll be right there!
Let me take this quiz and watch this dancer in Times Square.
The weather alert says we better get ready, it's going to be hot!
Facebook has something for everyone.
Friends and family and games just for fun.
There are fancy quotes about gratitude.
And angry people with an attitude.
Selfies, selfies, selfies galore.
Doesn't anyone take pictures of other people anymore?
I have just a bit more to do.
Let me share this post, and like that one, and write a comment, or two.
Good grief! I'm coming. You don't have to moan.
See I'm closing my laptop. I'm ready to go.
Just give me a moment while I grab my phone!
OMG, this is so true and you expressed it perfectly, Connie! Do you have any contest you could enter this one in? I love it. I don't own a cell phone and I just closed Facebook because it is such a time stealers, but blogging and pinterest are my weaknesses.ReplyDelete
This is a snapshot of my day ha ha.ReplyDelete
This is great, Connie. And SO true!ReplyDelete
Oh Wow, this is so true. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome talent. Couldn't have put it better myself.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I envy my friends who have never been on the internet, but other times I enjoy it so much. Clever poem, Connie.ReplyDelete
Lol... this can be so true Connie... I have given myself only 10-15 minutes per day... now I could do that with Twitter...ReplyDelete
I love being connected but sometimes we are way too connected and we neglect the people with us... xox
Thankfully, I can say that I am a non-use of FB, but from what I have heard others say, this poem really hits home about those who are FB addicted.ReplyDelete
Oh dear! I spend way too much time on Facebook.ReplyDelete
Haha so true! I have a real love/hate relationship with FB and you captured it all so well here. I'm only interested in a fraction of what goes on there yet I can't look away.ReplyDelete
Sadly, you have captured what our lives have become, living through others (and those political posts that raise my blood pressure and makes me wonder how friends and family can be so stupid)ReplyDelete
wow, i can relate however, i have limited my time there by probably 60% but i do like other places . I rarely post anything when I am FB anymore. I enjoyed reading this - really great poem.ReplyDelete
I hope Facebook addicts everywhere are reading this! It's clever, fun and painfully honest at the same time. Bravo Connie!ReplyDelete
Great!!! I don't do Facebook; even blogging takes too much of my time and has been forsaken this summer. I don't "text" either. :) Thanks for the smiles!ReplyDelete
A perfect sign of the times, and you included the question of the day: "Does anyone take pictures of other people anymore?" Bravo, Connie. Like, like, like.ReplyDelete
LOL. YOu described the dance with facebook so well. Fabulous Connie.ReplyDelete
HA! Sounds like some people I know. :)ReplyDelete
Fun poem, as always, but it isn't much fun to wait around while someone is playing on FB instead of interacting with the people who are actually in the same room with them.
LOL! I was going to say, where's your phone? Just take it on the go. =) Isn't that the world we live in though? It's almost hard to remember what life was like 20 years ago when you had to call someone, turn on the TV, or walk into a place to communicate.ReplyDelete
Oh Connie, I don't know how you come up with such great words and verse but you do.ReplyDelete
It's a wonderful gift you have, for others to enjoy, and enjoy I did.
All the best Jan
Yep - you captured today's world perfectly.ReplyDelete
Well now, that was pretty darn accurate!ReplyDelete
ha ha, this made me laugh! Very clever!.........and so true!ReplyDelete
Hmmmm, I don't think you missed a single thing- very true!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, everyone. :-)ReplyDelete
Facebook does indeed take up a lot of our time if we're not careful. It's easy to get pulled into it, and we do have a love/hate relationship with it and with other forms of social media.
That poem suits my kids to a tee, lol... I got off FB because I got hung up on all the dumb games. I do like pinterest and blogging. They are my time stealers. Hugs, LJReplyDelete
