Poem: "The Social Chameleon Speaks"

This poem came from the October 13, 2009 Poetry Fishbowl. It was prompted by siliconshaman and sponsored by janetmiles. This turned into cyberspace theory humor, rather than horror, but it does still involve a sort of shapeshifting effect.


The Social Chameleon Speaks



Here I am on MySpace:
My page plays jungle sounds
and has a background of cool green leaves.
It’s all about saving the rainforest.
I have a hundred Friends. (I had more before the maximum.)

@chameleon
tweet me, dudes
100k Followers & growing

Here I am on Facebook:
There is a photo in my portfolio.
It is not me but nobody knows that.
I am really into networking and nude sunbathing.
I have five thousand Friends.

I am the social chameleon.
I log on from a science station.
It’s not that hard to figure out
once you remember to keep your finger skin
a different color than the keyboard.
I’m telling you, networking is everything.
It’s where the future is headed

and that darn gecko on television
knows nothing about it,
nothing.
