Right, I suppose six months is long enough to be away! I will be posting a range of stuff on here for a while. I will start with this poem which is for all of you out there who detest the vile creature which is ‘text speak’!
I check each text I send,
Even if just to a friend,
For spelling, punctuation and good grammar.
It’s ADIH to see
These letters staring back at me.
I want to put my screen through with a hammer.
That’s why I’ve never LOL’d
A ROFLCOPTER just sounds rather scary.
Modern day communication’s
Filled with strange abbreviations
And words not found in any DXNRY.
Whereas some folks think they’re GR8,
Good grief, these acronyms I H8!
I’m IOMH in an ARE.
With so many FAQ
Just for the message to get through.
Can’t we just live in an AFZ?
Whilst I realise that YOLO,
I live my life with no FOMO.
I’ll AAF if there’s something I miss.
But I’m FIIK
About most messages today.
Can’t we just meet F2F and KISS?
I understand YMMV
And LMAO might not sound daft.
But I find YABA
Appearing every other day,
And I struggle because at my age I CRAFT.
