On A Dating Site
Through the web all night and day
Sheep do graze and wolves do prey.
Like cats and dogs we go astray
Searching the Path to Love freeway.
Torsos, faces, muscles, eyes,
Vivid, blurry, bold or shy.
When delete and when reply?
What’s the truth and what's the lie?
So I click and go around,
Scrolling up and scrolling down,
Being either fox or hound,
Feeling rather lost than found.
Shrug or sigh and start again
Browsing through all different men.
Guess it takes more than a click
To find what’s behind the pic.
Shouldn’t I just laugh and chill,
Submit to dating site windmill?
Relax, enjoy and here I find
The perfect grain, the finest grind.
Watch out: don’t fall in love online!
What’s written sounds smooth and fine.
But then you meet and “What the Heck!”
She is Fiona, He is Shrek!t
