The Fake and the PHAT
His picture was fake, but she was truly PHAT,
Liking her, he messaged her to chat back ASAP.
While chatting, she was shown the guy's true image: “WTH?”
she texted back to her gal pal, throwing in - SMH.
Acting all nice, she told the guy, “BRB.”
Privately she was wearing a BEG.
He believed for a short while that the girl was simply AFK.
Instead that PHAT ended up completely MIA.

PHAT = Pretty hot and tempting
ASAP = As soon as possible
WTH = What the heck?
SMH= Shaking my head
BRB = Be right back
BEG= Big evil grin
AFK= Away from keyboard
MIA = Missing in action
(I tried to match syllable counts per individiual couplet pairings, with the PHAT of the last line counting as four distinct syllables)
