As I mark 12 years of my face bettering;

Within the imaginary book of fiery face boosters;

I watched the masked face of Mark Zuckerberg with extremity,

Comrading the impalpable book where fake bulls dodge the doctrines,

And bomb the crawlers with their on-liners pethboot;

Facebook where shares are socially flabby,

Fury users drop the ill born of the unknown into the busy lot;

Where heaps of likes, comments and shares heal no guilt.


Facebook the carrier and holder of accounts,

Yes the boorish ones vomit venom that irritates and burns,

Far-off rivals whack themselves with cruelty behind the firewalls,

And bags of shared traditions are shred without apology,

Friendship is electronically netted and many are face friends,

It is here where bigwigs and pesky hoodlums collect quarries,

Unseemly and tactless friends are delete And block.


In Facebook popularity overtax humanity,

Titles fix no bridge on talk chats and talk shows;

Individuals run their own accounts and everyone is a user.

Professionals hold their diverse talents in veins,

Wisdom and consciousness goad face boosters to popularity;

Con men and slay queens haul the vicinity without difficulties,

Timelines are assail with cool and hot pebbles,

Confusions and confession are part of the phony diktats.


Facebook with its missy aficionado has jerky schedule,

More than drugs; Facebook has a responsive fixation,

With its whiffing knob users go wining and wilding,

By its tech-know-how many nod off while Facebooking,

Through its social networking sagas are expose and dispose;

This sheet-less book of young Mark is Super endow,

Facebook the twister of feeds has a nestling caress,

And users are never worry of data burdening.


Honed Harvard spear has terra firma sparkles.

Facebook, the unwritten book of the 21st Century;

Carries persuasive face that toss down users with loyalty,

This dot-comic train of young Zuckerberg has riotous howling;

Wine up by whatsApp, Instagram and Messenger wooers are woe,

The world is attentively watching its darting board,

As it twirl around the pillars of collective webbing,

The booker of billions faces is booting for better booking.
