Ode to Twitter

Do you remember the days where the sun always shone?
And the grass looked good - for the weeds-there were none

Do you remember the days of family days out?
And nobody knew the meaning of klout

Do you remember talking to your children and wife?
Do you vaguely recall even having a life?

Do you miss the quality chats you once had
When you actually conversed with your mum or your dad?

Do you remember how your children sound?
Do you recall the last time you had friends around?

Do you remember the days of marital bliss?
Do you remember the last time you even kissed?

I don't mean that peck as you walk through the door
I mean full-on snog pinned down on the floor

Do you remember the days when the smile on your face
wasn't entirely based on your follower base?

Dont you think its odd how we're best friends with strangers?
But as children we were taught the grave dangers

And the tweets that once inspired you were the ones in the trees,
not the number of retweets you achieved in a week

Do you remember when Facebook took most of your time?
But now it's a chore to check your timeline

Do you feel out of control and all of a flitter?
When you're unable to check your precious twitter

Yes twitter has changed us for better for worse
Do you think they'll have it in my funeral hearse?
