Treasure Island

Yasmeen Khan


Weird, Weird Virtual World


Virtual world a second life
To glistening screens we laugh and smile
Close friend just on one click
How easy to friend, unfriend them!
Deep intimacy, built on anamoly
Lifeless flowers, lively emoticons
Shared feelings are whispers in the wind
Twitter, Myspace, Facebook, Linkedin
Voiceless tweets, space not owned
Facebook friends never face-to-face
Online friends close to heart
Offline friends kept at bay
In this weird, weird virtual world
Where we move and often parade

Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
