Poetry

Persona Non Grata

He has his online persona

Honed to a tee for he seems

Much happier than you or me

And more successful too

Judging by his Facebook page

Which he peppers with posts

Of exploits at work and play

Relentlessly day after day

To satisfy the attention he craves.

But if anyone cared to ask

I could tell them that this man

Is different behind the mask

No better nor much worse

Than the rest of us who stumble

More humbly towards our graves.
