Comment Whore, I Should Be Vainly Ashamed - Poem by Sandra Dodd

I admit
I am addicted
Vain and shallow
like a comment vixen
I crave the moment
of the connection
like a drug of perfection

posting poems
Facebook updates
love to check
see whos read
what my puny
brain has said
who laughs
at a silly joke
to see if they know
today my heart has bled

as I log in
my heart rate raises
who will have left me
some jeers or praises?


elated when in red
'1 message unread'
to open and find
a new friend
or an invite to a party
that will be in Jacarti

total let down
just a politician
wanting my vote
OR
another poet who
want of his poems to gloat
Really now,
have they not heard?
This is my page
dont be absurd
its all about ME
and I want comment
Sux would be fine,
or your own confession.
just leave one dambit!
