Sweet Potato Fries

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY, 50 LIKES ABOUT “SWEET POTATO FRIES”.? PEOPLE POST ABOUT LOVE OR FAME ,  PEOPLE POST ABOUT PERSONAL GAIN, PEOPLE POST ABOUT FUN OR ABOUT HOPE, PEOPLE POST WITH A PERSONAL SCOPE. 

PEOPLE POST ABOUT TRAGEDY, LOSS OF A LOVED ONE OR A PET, SOMETHING SO DEAR, IT TOUCHES SO DEEPLY ITS MEANING SO CLEAR, THAT SOMEONE IS SHARING THEIR PAIN, 400 FRIENDS THEY DO REFRAIN, TOO AFRAID OR INDIFFERENT TO POST A “LIKE” AN INTELLIGENT POST GONE IN VAIN, REAL IS FORGOTTEN, ITS ONLY SHAME IS THAT IT IS A POST OF REALISM INDIFFERENCE TO BLAME.?

PEOPLE POST WITH SUCH INTELLIGENCE, THOUGHTFUL, PROVOKING AND WITH TOTAL RELEVANCE,  YET 300 FRIENDS DENY, THEY WOULD RATHER “LIKE” A PICTURE OF “SWEET POTATO FRIES”. 

A LIFE EVENT JUST OCCURRED, A NEW HOME BOUGHT, A TRIP OF A LIFETIME WITH PICTURES TO MATCH! SUCH INCREDIBLE POSTS BY ANY EYES MIND, OH BUT HOW TO COMPETE WITH “SWEET POTATO FRIES” 

YOU WONDER WHY SOME RARELY POST, ON A WALL LIKE A FLY, WELL YOU FIGURE IT OUT, IS IT THEY HAVE NOTHING TO SAY, NOTHING TO SHARE, NOTHING TO SPARE EXCEPT FOR THEIR FEELINGS TO SAY “I WILL POST RARELY” FOR YOU  CAN SEE LIKE A BIG MAC ATTACK, IT IS CLEAR TO ME WHEN PEOPLE HAVE POSTED SOMETHING CLEVER OR WRY, SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT OR THAT MADE ME CRY, HOW CAN YOU COMPETE WITH INSANE, EVERYTHING SIGNIFICANT SEEMS TO BE MET WITH SUCH DISDAIN.

SOCIAL MEDIA YOU SEE ALL HAVE MADE IT TO NOT WHAT IT COULD BE,  NOT A FORUM FOR JUST FUN OR LAUGHTER, OR THOUGHT, OR INSIGHT OR FOR LOVE EVER AFTER, SO WE OFTEN WONDER WHY  WHEN PEOPLE WITH HUNDREDS OF FRIENDS POST AMAZING THINGS TO BE OUT DONE BY  “LIKES” OF “SWEET POTATO FRIES”…POETRY BY DEAN
