Rik Bertrand (18 April 1959 / Portland, Oregon)
I am loving the time that I spend with you,
My Facebook friends...old and new!
Now is the time, I must confess,
It's getting late and I need to rest!
Good-night to you all, we'll talk again
Tomorrow I will read how you all have been.
I will talk of my honey love,
And last night's rain that fell from above.
It is strange how our life evolves,
How when we login into Facebook all else dissolves.
But I continue to check all my friends' updates,
While my family at the dinner table, patiently waits
We updat our status and bare all our sins,
And then we hit accept to add more friends
We are all kind of crazy and really quite mad,
But I really don't think Facebook is that bad.
So I will continue to click on all of my friends,
To see what you are up to, to see all your sins.
And you may tag me any old time,
When you post silly pictures or a poem that does rhyme.
