We appreciate your change,
Your attempt to rearrange on our behalf,
Some of us get pissed,
Your changes we dismiss,
Some of us,
Just rear our heads and laugh.
The truth is,
Come what may,
You have changed our day to day,
We connect now in a way,
Not like before,
So if you want to tweak a bit,
I don’t really give a shit,
You have made communication something more.

Wise words, my friend. It is awfully silly how so many of us get so angry when this one social networking website makes a few minor changes. Yet we cannot help ourselves. We are creatures of the status quo, and this aversion to change leads otherwise intelligent people to stay in bad relationships and other dangerous situations.
Turn and and face the strain…changes!
We react so strrongly because it means so much to us. It is simply so.
I could not communicate with my family the way I do without Facebook.
We expats know better than anyone else how it has changed our lives.
That’s what I’m talkin bout, Ken! I couldn’t believe all the crying and whining and gnashing of teeth on FB today. Get a grip folks! I bet all the Fb goons who worked on the change are laughing their butts off, watching all the wailing and moaning. Good job on the poem!
Thanks Charles! That is pretty much what it felt like today.
I like this, I felt the same way about Facebook…! Nicely done.
Facebook is becoming so large and it seems that we get too involved in this social media but anyway this is a great write and thanks for sharing
I don’t give a **** either. xoXox
Ha! Nicely done. http://tappingthewall.wordpress.com/2011/09/22/stars/
Thanks for the comments! It was a fun little write. 😉
Brilliant! This is so well said…Why do we get so attached to things that are not ours?
Thanks very much! Yeah, it is weird. It reminds me of that comedian, Louis CK. He does a whole bit about our new feelings of entitlement to things that never even existed a little while ago. People on airplanes being upset when the internet connection lags, completely missing that they are experiencing the miracle of flight, and thinking this new invention of internet whilst flying is something can now demand. Crazy!
Lol! I’m tweeting this!
Feel free! And thanks! 😉
