Social media links us all
Fun sometimes, it can appal
We share our mundane, petty lives
So it pays to advertise!

Often tempered with word play.
Though poems can be quickly wrought
Titles need much care and thought
Like coloured labels on a tin
Their aim is to entice you in!
Now the whole world is on line
It's exciting that a little rhyme
Can spread its wings on Internet
Wow! How lucky can I get!

At least one time upon my blog;
40,000 hits* – I am agog!
