Skeptical Old Man

Poetry By: attanasio
Poetry



I am especially skeptical of things I read on the internet. I hate to be duped and see it happen to others. I wrote this to raise awareness.

I become a skeptic when I am online these days

I take nothing at face value, I feel I must appraise

You say you are a woman, it may well be untrue

You say your story's true, perhaps its lies you spew

.

Things you claim to have for sale; not really there

Testimonials on your page, written just to snare

The price you quote, resembles not the final bill

The promises you make, that you will not fulfill

.

Ask for information you say that you'll not share

Or tell me I won't be contacted; then your there

You claim to have only my best interests at heart

But all you do consider is the corporate pie chart

.

False information through social media you tell

Expounding all the benefits, of what it is you sell

You sent me tracking cookies every time I click

Then pepper me with ads, you think you're slick

.

On Booksie some are not what they claim to be

They lie about their situation to a various degree

When I see unsuspecting people buying all the lies

I worry that they're gullible to believe in this disguise

.

Recently I noticed someone's most outrageous claim

Posted here on Booksie, I believe they play a game

Readers are blindly buying in and being duped by lies

But this old man is skeptical and has discerning eyes
