“Every day I go on Facebook to check on my wall,
I just stare and wonder if I even know you people at all.
I go on Twitter to tweet a tweet,
then on Instagram to share a random picture of my feet.
I post just about the most ridiculous things, including what I wear and what I eat.
I can’t stand my page being blank and white, so I come up with a funny story, whenever I can’t think of anything else to write.
If I’m really bored I might check out someone else’s page instead,
to post a rude comment about something they said.
I don’t hang out with a lot of friends,
but according to the internet, I have over a hundred and ten!
This is everyone’s routine day by day,
as we check posts, and secretly call each other names as we pass in the hallway.
We no longer have genuine compassion; instead we get straight to the point,
something I like to call bashing.
We think it’s normal to yell “Amy’s having a baby and Mark is going crazy!”
Texting is another great hobby,
I just got a message calling Amy a slut,
and Mark’s girlfriend a complete nut.
We call this our way to connect,
but society is turning into a wreck.
Social media helps us to keep in touch,
but I think it’s the reason we haven’t slept much.
Sometimes I stay on my phone till 4 in the morning,
but who needs sleep anyways? That’s boring!
The internet is such a time consumer.
Its fast pace has even caught up to the late bloomers.
I think I’m going crazy; I can hardly go a day.
I wonder if other people are this way.
It’s such a distraction while I’m supposed to be doing homework.
But keeping up with all these statuses is already enough work.
You can find EVERYONE on Facebook!
From aunts to uncles and about a million girls named Brook.
Some people write about the most interesting things,
Including their relationships which have no strings.
Reminds me of Anita, So easy to please, seems charming and wise,
but easy for all the guys.
Meanwhile, Sammy is bullied until she sits there and cries.
Our eyes are glued to the screens that only causes affliction,
Welcome to social media, the world’s latest greatest addiction.”

I decided to look for a poem on social media because, recently, we have talking about social media in class and I thought this could help us.😁”
