I sit at my computer and wait for a response
Put on four of my best ones- over Christmas
Come back from a ramble, take a look at the screen
My eyes droop with sadness, there’s nobody been.
“Recently created”- under poetry and humour
Checking for two days- not much of a clamour
A story is uploaded- by a fellow poet
Twenty views a minute- I want them to shove it.
Another poem is posted to the site
Thirty views a second, from me it’s “Goodnight”
I wave farewell, as you pass me by
Three days of waiting for a comment that says “Hi”.
I go to have my say on something I have read
A page full of comments- I wish I was dead!
An advantage of my poetry, it must be heaven- sent
You’ve not far to scroll down to leave a comment.
By now your probably thinking “You should write better verses”
“Then people will communicate, in their masses”
If people passing by think my poetry is crap
It’s time to take action and remedy that.
“Booksie, Booksie, I’ll mention your name
When it comes to the title, I’ll do very much the same”.
I’ll mention “Booksie” in my poem and its title
May help to get reads- it could be vital
For my profile to be seen, I’ll use every trick
My poetry’s still shit but I’ll be famous for it!
