Inaz Lol`d! - Poem by Debra McIntyre

Inaz was a people person
Who trusted a smiling face
She had a lot friends
That she met in cyberspace
Of all her friends
She liked Fred the most
Based on his gift of gab
She told him all of her secrets
She told him about what made her sad
Fred listened to Inaz`s stories
While making mental notes
On how to get Inaz to trust him more
So that he could float her boat
When he surmised that he knew exactly what to say
He told her his own sad story
And convinced her to meet with him that day
When Inaz got to the playground
All she saw was a middle aged man
Who didn't look at all like the fifteen year old
That she viewed on her webcam
She acted like she had lost her puppy
And made a quick retreat
She ran in the opposite direction
So that he wouldn't know her street
When finally she made it home
Shaking she dried her eyes
She deleted Fred from her friends list
And promised herself never to lie
About how mature she thought she looked
And never to trust a smiling face
Especially when the face in front of her
Could mean trouble
The kind that could erase her face
