I met with friends and made some more
While sipping Earl Grey in a mall
As on Saturday the tempo slows
There’s time to linger, mobiles closed.
Nothing beats a contact face-to-face
(Facebook friends aren’t in the race)
So there I was with cup of tea
Engaging in some repartee!
This “meet up”, one of many here,
Enables in a social sphere
People who have just arrived
In Brussels - to connect and thrive.
An exchange of views: China, Japan,
An Italian lady, a Greek man
All chatted for an hour or two;
Making links is what we do!
That’s the problem with the world today
We communicate the “virtual” way
Too many emails, SMS
When really - real contact is best!
