Media Magic

this media game is quite dodgy…
really it is you know…
So take it seriously
 And it could cause a terrible blow
To your ego or what?
What? What’s app you say!
What’s app!
They all say “hi”
As I watch the day go by
But what is real?
And what is not?
Are you my friend?
Oh I forgot!
You’ve blocked me
Im in the mute bin again – why?
So now I’ll go away and cry!
She said this
And he said that
Today someone is wearing a different hat!
They swap them daily
There is love then trouble
It all emerges from this media bubble!
I get confused …
Who is my friend?
They often change their tune
So much!
Can drive you round the flipping bend!
So I’ll play some music
Just say “hey!”
Perhaps my knight in shining armour
… will ride by today!
It’s all good fun  .. it is isnt it?!?!
Just a game
Our World will never be the same…
So many people to chat to now
I really don’t see how
There are so many folks with whom I can converse!
So I’ll write a poem or just a verse
We’ll share pictures with each other
Causing shock and hails of laughter!
Say meaningful quotes
and jokes so funny
it really will make my day quite sunny
my dinner plate for all to see
my dear little cat
and my dog with a flea!
My family all hide its true
they dont always want to say “hi” to you!
you might not be “cool”
enough you see
if you havent  been out for afternoon tea!
Could even find
For happy ever after!
Yes … that knight in shining armour!
where is he
now is he really in love with me!
he might pop up here
To wipe away my tear…
or take my imaginary hand
and walk with me across the invisible sand
But today I’ll put the iPad down
I know there is another clown
Sending me messages
or pulling a funny face
or saying daft words
to make me pace
But I really i dont want to talk
And im going for a walk
To see some trees and a field
A lovely wholesome surrounding
Does somehow yield
The simple happiness
to stop my heart from pounding
so i will take some simple steps
it only takes a couple, mind
to leave this social screen behind
And find the place
I once knew
As a child years ago where I grew
So I’ll say fare thee well
My media pals
I won’t be seeing you for a while…
Have a good day
And do be kind
On these social media platforms
Please stay calm dont cause a storm
And have in mind
For the hearts of those behind their profile
They are real souls you know …
So heed them gently do .. as you go
I know some play games
So best just say “boo!”
or “get lost!”
your sanity it could cost!
And take what you hear with a pinch of salt
Or you could be caught
in a net of cross wires
and media trivia
by some teasing twitterer or facebook diva!
It may seem real
It may not..
Who knows
Who cares
It can soon be forgot!
You see the fresh air and countryside call me now
So I will really go this time …
To be alone amid grass and flowers
Rather than with millions on my little phone app
Where there are profiles friendly real  and false …so.. trillions!
And how is that?
The Globes so changed so fast
Will this media magic surely last!
It’s all quite crazy
But I’ll keep my head above the water
Even though it’s quite hazy
We must not falter
And keep life real
It’s no big deal
So wheres my Polly dog?
Off we go for a walk
Let’s talk..
 reality …
and feel that lovely grass beneath my feet wonderful
to be free….
of media
and feel the cool breeze on my skin
lets being
to live again….
and if you are in luck
you might bump into a duck!

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
