You'll be missed,
You will always be remembered.

More than any.

You'll be missed.

A Loner

Such a soul I was,
Sulking in corners,
On my lonesome,
Part of me relished it-
The other despised,
Social tendencies-
A bit different,
Why yes,
I’ll forever be a loner.

Walking in streets, hungry, hopes in dumpsters.

Kind, she is always,
And stays in step.

Lively and living life to the fullest,
A well mannered, that will be greatly missed, social princess.

I put up a good front when I have to be
mingling around others socially.
The truth is I'm not what I appear to be.
I'm not a social people kind of person. 
I live very reclusively.

Endeavor to be Emollient!

Why should your poetic voice be violent?
If you can’t sing a sweet song… be silent.
     Respect is reciprocal,
     It’s sweet to be social,
Poets should endeavor to be emollient!

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Everyday, to God I pray
For answers to Life's enigmas
Patience lays in wait to stay-
To cleanse our Social Stigmas
We pass the time in our idle Dreams:
Like fallen Stars in singing streams

Short Social poem by Erika Siegel| Details |

You drunk mess.

Drunkenmess is like the turning tables of your childhood that you conviently forgot was good.
Regretably misbehave
you dig your own social grave.
and forgivness is only waiting from God.

Which Would You Prefer

Which would you prefer, the rungs that reach
to social prominence, or are you content rather
to remain where you're at? If given the choice,
which would you prefer – the former or the ladder?

Short Social poem by George Zamalea| Details |


Despite their voting
On the Voting Right Act of 1965
People of this notion
Are still so confused at heart;
Loss of this angry sea,
I the neutral and what I dare 
Above the last cry of Social Rights.

Short Social poem by Shay Funk| Details |

power clique

You know who they are
The people who run
Your social kingdom
We are built on them
The groups of people who are the
Power clique 
But you still are just you
And you want the
Fame that they have

Short Social poem by Sizo Hlophe| Details |



This lad
He walked towards time
Knew little of societal squabbles
He struggled on for social acceptance.
Welcome this guest of honour
Show him enormous love
A well rounded 
Smart being,

Security in Jeopardy

The Social Security system

Is struggling to find a sound rhythm

     If Grandpa survives

     Past Age 65

Will Feds send a posse to kill him?

Short Social poem by John Goodman| Details |

humanity unsung

until day when children from all social classes
and backgrounds
walk hand in hand
and justice sings
throughout all lands
we’ll know humanity has won

until that day
hearts bleed
bodies suffer
and humanity’s song

remains unsung.

the carebear

I really like the carebears  I really think that this hurricane everything will be alright. I know 
a lot of people and  am popular.  I know a lot of people.  I live off of social security.  I have 
a brain disease.   I take care of it good.

Hetty,loved by simple Adam Bede
Yet her heart felt another need
Her head was turned by the fickle squire
With many a' consequence so dire,
Her actions set the village life afire.

What I Like

Summer breezes
Ice cream social meetings
Kids laughter at any time
Shopping with enough to buy
Men who know who, what, where
A girl friend who keeps flare
All the new 
Leaving behind the old
Trips on planes and trains
Long drives with you in mind

Short Social poem by Veronica Joseph| Details |

Sallie Mae

papers folders everywhere
social numbers
paper clips
last years folders
phone numbers
financial aid forms
work receipts
how many more years do I have to be
best friends
with Sallie Mae?

(and Dear God how will he ever pay back the loans?)

Short Social poem by Emily Marks| Details |


Of Solitude
As she drifts 
Over mountainous cliffs
Into the atmosphere

Wake her
Shake her

Falling from the skies
Eyes swell over the rim
As she cries
Feeling overwhelmingly grim

Even the social outcast
Yearns for a companion

Electronic visit

5 March 2013 12:01 PM

Posting this posting that
passing on jokes and little known facts

Giving praise and request for prayer
reaching out to loved one through the air

Thank you Father for social machines
and let us not forget the blessing
a real visit can be.

Short Social poem by Jim Tidd| Details |


Once again our hearts are broken, 
similar words President spoken,	
another loss to demon rounds	
this time on Navy Yard grounds.
We usher victims to next stop,
hope their deaths are not a prop
to justify this or support that,
in ongoing trial of social combat.

"The Cellulite, not so Tight"

Pouching out in all the wrong places
Changes expressions on people’s faces
   For sugar sweet on your lips
   Puts cellulite on your hips
Never to win, swimsuit’s social graces

Short Social poem by john bernard| Details |

Won’t you agree

In my hyper activity
I try to gain validity
With rampant veracity
I search out social equality
I do all this so readily
And always politely
Do not go out blindly
But will go out bravely
Even when blustery
Will always go calmly
I can be so silly
Won’t you agree

two rr's

My father was a gambling man when the odd chance he did win before they could pay 
they needed his social security number and his name he'd give them a random number 
and say his name was Joe Petzavoka they would reply "CAN YOU SPELL THAT" he would

Word Impression Poem 7: Constult

Heights there are,
Which no intelligence, perhaps, may reach,
But when the foolish conspire together
They fall, entwined, into a bottomless deep.
Bad enough to drift in our lone delusions
But when leaders gather and constult,
Social decay should be the expected result.

Short Social poem by Daljit Khankhana| Details |


S: stability
I : in
S: Social
T: transformation
E: engagement
R: recommendations.
Sister, a kind hearted and best supporter.
Always Faithful in crisis and brother’s devoter.
Unbreakable relationship a graceful matter,
A linking bridge, painful and happiness potter.

My Thoughts

Our life's are not complicated, but our social behaviour has made our thoughts more complexed. We tend to be in a state of absence, but our actions have become our very own enemy, and when we thrive to survive the possibilities, all we have is our own thoughts surrounded by delusion.

Short Social poem by Mark Peterson| Details |

The Social Implications of Special Relativity

Relativity’s science has its place, yet surprises us with social rhyme. For if you say you need your space, then be prepared to give me time. For if expanding space for you then contracts your time with me, perhaps we'll need to soon undo our bonds of relativity
