“The Blocking Song: WHAT SOME WILL DO!” a poem June 28, 2019 (Friday)
She blocks and blocks and stops the talks,
And blocks some more: [She-says:] “It’s such a bore,
To have to deal with folks to-day;
I’LL BLOCK AND BLOCK THEM ALL AWAY!”
And in the morning, sunlight shines,
And ALL-ARE-BLOCKED, and there are signs,
That she or he is almost GONE!
“I’m-sorry-I-blocked-you; forgive-me, John;*
Please TAKE ME BACK, or I might die;
Please, please, please – I’m gonna cry!”
[Later that same day:] “Oh, GOOD! I got a few ‘Friends’ back;
I AM a fine computer “hack!”
What’s THIS? How dare you do that NOW;
I’m gonna BLOCK – that racist cow!
I’m gonna BLOCK, ’cause-he-di’n-respec’-me;
I WILL-NOT-TOLERATE Rudeness! I’m free!”
“I’ll BLOCK-these-‘idiots,’ who-think-I’ll-not,
Block them too! GOOD-BLOCKIN’-I-GOT!
BLOCK!!!!! I-can-block – all day long;
I have composed – ‘The Blocking Song,’
For: YOU! and-YOU! and-stinky-ol’-YOU!
I’ll block you all; it’s nothing new!
I’ve-blocked your-sorry arses-be-fore;
I’ve-blocked-you-and-kicked-you OUT THE DOOR!
Oh-oh! Oh, no! What-have-I-done?
I EVEN BLOCKED – MY FAVORITE SON!
PLEASE! Somebody-help-me, help-me-for-I,
Have blocked MYSELF!” Oh! (pause) Hey-There! HI!
My Little Mouse – will-you-be-my-friend?
BUT THE MOUSE WAS SILENT, for we all tend,
To click and click – our mice – for-blocks!!!!!
- – and a host of other former social media friends!!
