Back in the day they said an eye for an eye
Social media kicks in no rules comply
Jumping on statuses to keep in with the gang
Then nothing back? There leaving you hang?
A comment for a comment, fair is fair
A vote for a vote, a share for a share
Too cool for school to leave a reply
Makes you ask yourself as friends, simply why?
Not commenting on things you know they find attractive
But on everybody else’s page they are franticly active
‘No I Haven’t been on in a while, I didn’t see your post’
Yet they comment on a mutual friend’s picture of tea and toast!
Think wisely when adding friends to your list
Everyone wants to see but some pretend you don’t exist
You would never delete or block a true friend
Thank god the true ones you know from beginning to end
Your true friends before the viral world spiralled out of control
And after virtual hype dug its nails in, and took its toll
Like everything that is popular, the advantages are there
But you have to be strong, act like you don’t care
No more liking everything when it is not coming back
Your true friends would never put you in the black
The Virtual you should never have to pretend
Give up the pretence it has to end…………….
