ALAS, THAT BLOGGER…I KNEW THEM WELL
One gets used to seeing a name,
And reblogging posts from the same…
Until the day
They go away,
And you’re left behind–what a shame!
Everyone has the chance to upgrade,
It’s a decision that many have made…
But harder to share
With someone not there,
But walking in another promenade.
To me, to reblog is a compliment,
Helping share their story onward sent…
But some go commercial
And resent any inertial
Toward sharing without paying a single cent.
And others “better” platforms have found,
To be lifted further toward high ground…
Causing all left behind
To be happy for their kind,
But sad that themselves can’t be similarly bound.
Following over a thousand posters now,
I shouldn’t let the few furrow my brow…
But I feel the loss
Of friends’ need to cross
That line where they alone want to plough!
Will I ever follow in the breach,
My fellow bloggers with larger fields to reach…
I do wish I could share
Automatically out there,
I think I’d have to set up shop in each!
(Maybe Ron DuBour will know how!)
