You could sing this to the tune of a Mozart hymn, if you were so inclined.
Life is like a Facebook status,
Falling quickly out of sight,
Rushing past with no hiatus,
Bits and chips in hurried flight.
Glimpses of our kin and cronies,
Reading just what they reveal,
Never knowing if they’re phonies,
If their joy or pain is real.
When we’re busy, much we’re missing,
Posts are sent we do not see,
Later, we start reminiscing,
Far from friends and family.
