Virtual World


I thought that I would journey

To the place revered by teens.

They make regular visits

Via numerous machines.

I start my cyber venture 

Through online communities.

Networks and the worldwide web

Virtual realities.

Entering this unknown world

I find language that’s unique.

I’m sure I can translate it

Google search will help me seek.

I start out full of vigour

Keen to learn and to explore.

But I soon meet with problems

Social media what a chore!

Facebook, snapchat, instagram

Where’s explorer mum to start?

Poke, like, kick, request a friend

Society’s come apart!

Twitter, skype and tumblr too

They keep adding more apace.

I think instead of facetime

I’ll just stick with face to face.
