WHY READ WHEN YOU CAN ‘LIKE’?

God, do me a great favour
Offering to you I will hike,
Let people read the stuff I put up,
And not just press the ‘Like’.

Also, God, this is straight from heart,
With no offences meant,
Why don’t you goad them on sometimes,
To press the button called ‘Comment’?

There are others who don’t even ‘Like’ God,
So, those who do are better;
But, whilst I like their spirit God,
I also want to see their letter.

If we are not careful, God,
We’ll soon reach a time,
When people will press buttons at random,
With no real reason or rhyme.

So, let everyone who likes this post,
Tell us his own valued point;
So that rather than being one-sided,
This effort will be joint.

Who knows, while doing so,
We may actually discover the gold;
That is hidden somewhere in the heart,
But is patiently waiting to be told?

Lets have one day of the week,
When we shall actually share our thought,
And simply not press the button ‘Like’,
And hope to convey all we’ve got.

  3. Ravi,i think u should grant a permission to all bloggers to use this lovely poem after each of their posts. 🙂
    the promote button on indiblogger is one such example .its a button which needs to be clicked responsibly. 🙂

  4. LoL…understand your angst! By pressing only the ‘Like’ button one cannot guage the depth of understanding or feeling of the presser and whether he/she empathises with the situation portrayed in the post/blog…it almost appears insulting…I have time enough to read your post as you are my friend and it appeared on my timeline…thank you…’Like’ pressed!!! 🙂

    1. Thank you Kali. Sadly, I can read my posts viewership in the Stats. I am, therefore, surprised when sometimes I get many more ‘Likes’ than page-views! Also, on the Facebook, if in your notifications, you get about a dozen ‘Likes’ from a person in one minute flat, it is indicative that all that he or she is ‘liking’ is a few words introducing the link without clicking on the link at all.

  5. Great Read,

    And Surely, whoever reads it will feel motivated to comment,
    for it’s really inviting too.

    My additional takeaway is, something I always believed, We ALWAYS find time in a 24 hr day to pursue what we really like,

    Keep enjoying yourself with the Refreshing Rhymes and Innovative Scripts, to offer delight to the visitors to the blog – for 5 mins or 50!

    1. Thank you. I entirely agree with you that those who are busy always have time. I am, for example, sixty; I have a job at Reliance. I look after 12 groups, pages and this blog and I have time to meet people, comment, and go for walks everyday.
