Day 130. Friday August 24th 2018


Thanks Facebook!

© 2018 Steve Cook


I would like to thank Facebook

For all the hysteria and twaddle,

Piffle, baloney, palaver and prattle

Daily delivered in varying doses

Direct to my pc, iPad and laptop.

Not to mention the tittle-tattle and piffle,

Hogwash and bullshit, natter, chatter

Drivel and blather that convinced me

In the end that I'd rather

Give all of it a miss

And bother no longer

To put my head in its torrent

Of intellectual piss.


I'd like on the other hand

To thank the online Thesaurus

Whose linguistic efforts

Made this poem possible.
