Little Match People

by Julia Griffin

“[P]eople are using ChatGPT to chat with matches on Tinder”

I’m chatting with matches on Tinder:
I sound like a bore and a liar.
What is there to help and not hinder
My efforts at lighting their fire?

It’s CHAT, and it’s hot as a brazier!
It’s CHAT with a G, P, and T:
And given I’m slower and lazier,
Who’d want to make do with just me?
