Poems of the Week

Considering the Alternatives

by Dan Campion

“Looking to leave Twitter? Here are the social networks seeing new users now”

With what’s on offer—Mastodon
(Sad fate, like Montezuma’s),
Hive Social (bees are looking wan),
And Post (as in “posthumous”)—

Thank goodness I’m not looking to
Leave Twitter, now or ever,
That grapevine sour through and through.
When did I sign up? Never.
