Afternoon snooze

Willing myself to chill out
by reading Facebook updates?

what’s that all about?
you
can’t chill out when you’re
logged up to the eyeballs
trying to avoid the pitfalls
in other people’s details.

The day is three quarters empty,
see if you can
drink that from the bottom of the glass.

Everyone and his wife want to tell
you to live a better life,
bugger off’s all I can say

so chillin’s off the menu
doing the things that I do,
Facebook would like to
but
I adjusted the privacy
settings.
