I’m Much Cooler Online
My button sez I’m much cooler online,
but I’m beginning to wonder if it’s true;
I’ve had just this week a helluva time
convincing some folks…. a coupla more than a few.
I tried to explain that I’m really jerk,
that I’m dull-witted, boring & crude,
that I have more than my share of reprehensible quirks
and I’m often embroiled in a feud.
The me that you see online is a quack,
a forgery of the real inner ass;
I am, in fact, I tell them, a mulish old hack,
without scruple or a shadow of class.
“Nay!”, they say, “surely you jest!
How could you be any worse
than you are online?!….you’re a pest,
you’re unfunny & you curse!”
I’ve been abused & scolded online this week,
chastised, un-friended & scorned….
perhaps I’ll quit being mild mannered & meek,
don’t say you haven’t been warned!
