On A Plate


So very tired of all those
Poor Facebook addicts
Posting pics of the food
They are about to eat
He posted a photo of
What he’d already eaten

Brown, sausage-shaped
Shining on a white plate

Sadly it did not go viral
Then he remembered
“If at first you don’t …”
He thought, “I’ll produce
A more successful one
And post it tomorrow!”

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

      And lets throw in the spyware that is the Gorgle Search engine and Gorgle Chrome while we’re at it? Why not switch to DuckDuckGo and Opera? (Until the Gorgle monster buys them up at least.)
