A Poke In The Facebook

Somebody please explain to me why Facebook invented and retains the stupid Poke feature. In the meantime, here’s my A Poke In The Facebook limerick.

A Poke In The Facebook
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Facebook friends, please do not poke.
I don’t care if you’re female or bloke.
If you’ve something to say,
Use the commenting way.
Or message me. Pokes are a joke.

    Why can’t that be my comment? Facebook would consider it adequate. But here I had to say more. UNLIKE!

    Twitches, that’s a mighty fine FB grievance. :)

  3. Face Book, Schmace Book, give me a break
    All this social networking, I just can’t take.
    LOL from the Face Book crowd
    Why can’t they just say, Laugh out loud?
    All this babel, wished they’d leave me alone
    I’ll give em a poke, and it’ll be with my bone.
