Facebook Brain

cell phone in the morning
soon as I open my eyes
gotta check that facebook
twitter
google
instagram

tablet at breakfast
to read the news
to read the latest gossip
in magazines
on the net
and again, facebook

lunch time already
gotta log in
share a pic of my lunch
drink
dessert
and oh, check facebook

after work, finally
gotta drive home
better check the traffic
on my phone
check if my friends
are out of work too
better see their status
on facebook

Yes, home!
turn on the computer
skype a little bit
print out a recipe
take a pic
look, I cooked dinner
what did everyone else make?
I wonder if they posted
their dinner
on facebook?

so tired
time for bed
but i wonder who’s still
on facebook
I’ll just take a little peek
and check…

I Am But Your Fool

I come at your beck and call
Though you’re never there for me
And I kiss the ground you tread on
Though you never notice me
And I slay the monsters ahead of you
Though you never see me
I polish your scepter and throne
Though you always look past me

What has become of me
What will become of me

I am but your fool
Sitting by your feet
Like a court jester
I prance in defeat
Making you smile
While my heart frowns
For I’ll never be the one
To wear the king’s crown

O, my queen
You torture me so
These invisible chains
Forbid me to go
My heart bleeds
For love in return
But I’m but a weed
Unwanted and scorned

What has become of me
What will become of me

I am but your fool
Sitting by your feet
Like a court jester
I prance in defeat

I am
April’s fool…
I am
