Poems of the Week

Tumblring After

by Julia Griffin

“Everybody is tweeting about ‘cliff wife‘”
—The Guardian

“Watch my wife fall down a cliff!”
Tweets Jack, and shortly after,
He becomes a meme and gif
And butt of Google’s laughter.

“Cliff Wife Guy” now rues his life,
And Jill’s must also rankle:
Thanks to Jack, she’s Cliff Guy Wife;
She’s also bruised her ankle.
