You will happily pay for likes,

on your not so smart phone,

that is after all your prerogative,

your reason for twenty-first living,

abandoned by reason,

ashamed of shame,

but you cannot bear

to part with cash

for someone to truly despise you,

such is life, pay in

or pay out, me

well I have a credit card holder

always standing by,

for the multitude who silently seethe

under their breath

when they picture me.
