Took the world by surprise,
On this shiny laptop screen,
Were glued all eyes!
When Facebook was born,
I was fifteen,
By the time it became a craze,
I had a mind too keen.
I registered an account,
No money or documents required,
And Zuckerberg's army was increasing,
Software engineers at whooping packages hired!
I talk to my friend miles away,
I see my cousins traveling across the seas.
A social networking mania kicked off
Which was never to cease!
One evening as I log in,
I have a friend request,
It is from my mother,
And I thought I knew her best!
My father soon follows in,
More active than me on Facebook!
And so more photographs and posts,
I had to look.
This is just the beginning,
Of a complete virtual social world to come,
Where we will meet our future generations also on the screen,
Till then I will sit back to enjoy my brandy and rum!
