(My worldwide Facebook fans will have been perturbed by my absence)


Don’t do Facebook anymore

Di’n’t do Twitter too before

Yes, I’ve kicked them out the door

So you all now know the score

Don’t do Facebook anymore.


There’s no reason why I should

Read the posts of stupid cruds

I’d ignore them if I could

But I can’t; in likelihood

My responses cause bad blood.


I’ve grown tired of all the shit

Like the dross  you pass for wit

Your pearls of wisdom I’ll omit

From my study; I’ll admit

I’ve grown tired of all this shit.


Yes, ignoring them I’ve tried

But I simply cannot bide;

Out the window I have spied

That there’s life goes on outside

Gonna join in, I decide.


Don’t do Facebook anymore

It’s a vice I’ll now ignore

Other stuff I will explore

Fans will reel in shock and awe;

Don’t do Facebook anymore.

Absolutely, MC. What’s more, folks didn’t “Like” my posts of my dinners.

I had a passing acquaintance with Facebook - curiosity more than anything. But I soon lost interest in its worship of the trivialities..
Talk about exercising the ego!!

The ironic thing, Po, is that Although I consider myself left of centre in my politics, I fall out mostly with those on the Hard Left. and not those on the Right. It’s as though they consider they have “The Answers”, which are immune from critique.

I like you John have the same issue

I am a Leo so of course, I will respond.

I don't always want to bother... However, my headstrong nature will not let pap, trite, and twaddle go without comment normally.

My bad I guess.

Thanks, Trevor and Po. I read once on Facebook one of those posts of homespun philosophy which “You don’t have to respond to everything you don’t agree with”. Well, I’m afraid I can’t do that. So I decided to delete my apps.
And thanks for the Like, moon girl.

Their loss is our gain

that place can be a pain

Mind you I have been obsessive

at a certain party quite expressive

Party's over cakes all gone

shame you didn't pop along

Po 😴

The best of luck with life outside
So many people now have died
That Covid rules have been applied
And liberty is set aside
So we’re locked down and trapped inside

I can sympathise - there ain't half some idiots on social media!
