I hate Facebook - A Haiku

After reading so many Haiku poems in Hubpages, I too was attacked by the Haiku fever. Tried to attempt a haiku with Facebook. Though I'm not sure whether I have followed the Haiku ethics, but I believe, I have conveyed my thought.

You add friends

Though your understanding isn’t mutual,

Your friends are!

Your status message says

“I’m dying on my bed”

People like this!

You share links

Wait for notifications to blink,

But forget to think.

Morning facing Facebook

Keep clicking likes whole day

Your family clicks dislike.

You read private news

That becomes public news on your wall

What is private then?

OMG, lol, Rofl, TC,TQ,

Words are getting shorter,

Stronger Facebook relationship.

Read face like a book

Just don’t click likes in Facebook

Virtual love deceives.

I hate Facebook!

But click “like” for this,

Irony of life

Wonderful, Sankari. We are a generation ahead of the FB, and so it does sometimes befuddle our idea of relationship. True. It was highly creative to make Haiku out of that amazement . Voted up and shared.
