They like it or follow as the headline scrolls by
But the idea of reading it doesn’t take root.
Even clicking the title seems a price just too high,
and growing seeds of ideas? They just want the fruit.
And yet still they like it, though the page be unseen.
Is there a point to that? A reason? A why?
Maybe they skim, missing the words in-between,
but it’s a lot to take in from some random guy.
There’s too many words and the point isn’t clear,
seems more like discussion than a neat, easy list.
Might as well stop reading it here,
there’s a semblance of something and I might have the gist.
Nobody’s reading now, they’ve scrolled to the end
there’s too many words for one person to read.
The point should be there, the identified trend,
and then I can make up my mind with some speed.
Each day there’s a hit though there’s usually more,
and it matters not what’s gone up on the site.
Sometimes there’s lots but there’s no hard or fast law
that can predict if the views will be heavy or light.
Whether I publish, well, there it is.
Whether I comment or not, there’s a hit.
They look at About and see “oh, it’s his”
but that’s as far as they go with this shit.
There’s too many words now and yawn, where I am now?
Why did I open this – who linked me here?
I’m on this strange page and I don’t even know how,
and there’s not even pictures? Read, no no dear.
So I look at the chart as there’s a rise or a fall,
grouping the numbers by days, months or weeks,
hoping to comments notifications will call,
and glimpses of opinions delivered in peeks.
Yet nobody’s talking and everyone’s still,
Cause nobody’s reading a word of this crap.
And the sporadic views are no longer a thrill,
unless they’re from somewhere unique on the map.
Do you have an opinion, a solitary thought?
Why the hell isn’t it posted on here?
Write your bloody comments so I can retort,
and reduce all dissent to flashes, all mere.
