Hey Jack! How ya doin?

Not so great, thanks Joe.

What’s up? Feeling low?

Messenger is slow today.

Can’t seem to find my happy place.

Seen a happy face kicking around?

Not lately Jack. They’re rare

These days don’t yah know.

I saw a couple on Facebook.

Only a couple Joe? Was one mine?

Nope Jack they belonged to

A furry little kitty, cute too!

 

But the next thing I knew

Someone got shot at the zoo!

And someone else did too!

It’s a jungle out there!

 

Wish my happy face’d, come home.

Me too. Seems the world is dying,

Did you hear? Ya I do, everyday,

they tell me too.

Joe? Do you

Ever wonder if its true?

Guess I do. If they say its true,

it must be true.

 

Joe?

Think maybe

We should go for a real coffee,

Watcha say? 

Let’s go see if we can find

Some real happy faces Joe.

OK! Let’s go!

  1. What a brilliant take on real vs virtual happy faces! The facade we create through social media and how sometimes manage to trick even ourselves! 😋 I had to painstakingly teach myself to stay away from most social media sites and especially what to share when I do engage online so it doesn’t interfere with my personal time. 😊 Thank you for sharing this gem, Jen!

    1. It takes awhile to see what all that messaging does to your mind LOL Its a mental rollercoaster. I’m on FB less and less. I have about 6 real life friends on there so I support them. Thanks for seeing my point 😊👍
