Face(book) down

Now many will see abient
Facebook’s negative gradient
When price fails deeper down
We’ll see less score a frown
Faces will look more radiant

Zucked out Facebook share price – latest stock value after shares fall by more than the value of Starbucks following Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal
Facebook suffered its biggest stock market plunge since 2012 as concerns grew over the social network’s handling of user data.

FACEBOOK’S shares nosedived after a major privacy blunder wiped more than £67 billion ($95billion) off the company’s value.

That drop is greater than the total market value of major corporations such as chip-maker Qualcomm ($85billion), Starbucks ($81billion) and Costco ($80billion).

Puppy Love

Puppy love

Do you know the powers due to true love
Bestowed by Zeus in Olympus above
Prayers to fond Gods hours dwell there
Not e’er in dispute well I swear
This true bond of my cute new puppy love

Puppy Love

And they called it puppy love
Oh I guess they’ll never know
How a young heart really feels
And why I love her so

And they called it puppy love
Just because we’re in our teens
Tell them all, please tell them it isn’t fair
To take away my only dream

I cry each night my tears for you
My tears are all in vain
I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You’ll be back (you’ll be back) in my arms (in my arms)
Once again (you’ll be back in my arms once again)

Someone help me, help me, help me please
Is the answer up above?
How can I, oh how can I tell them
This is not a puppy love

Someone help me, help me, help me please
Is the answer up above?
How can I, oh how can I tell them
This is not a puppy love

(This is not a puppy love)
(This is not a puppy love)
Not a puppy love
(This is not a puppy love)
(This is not a puppy love






The AAAmazing Phoenix

The AAAmazing Phoenix

There are always reasons
For a Phoenix all seasons
I simmer in summer
I augment in autumn’s stir
Then one winter
In a northern
November hemisphere
I retire
-I cannot remember where-
My heart’s afire
With gnarls and gnashes
And fiery flashes
In December
I turn
I burn
In my fire
My funeral pyre
Then as every ember
Grows older
And colder
And turns to ashes
I freeze
I cease
I expire
In spring eons after
With flickers flames and flashes
-Ignore my tenterhooks
I emerge from the ashes
And await your tender looks
I’m a fierce-some creature
With an eternal feature
Sadly not one you share
For you have perished
Without any laughter
For eons I’ve cherished
Our memories with care
You will be in my heart
Though we will be apart
Now and ever after
Heart torn
I yearn

The Prima Ballerina III

The Prima Ballerina III

A ballet queen extremely elegant
My prima ballerina elephant
This dance genius is my muse
In green tutus and ballet shoes
Her purchases hardly extravagant

She’s extremely agile and light on her feet- the tightrope doesn’t appear to be bending!

She’s thinking about buying cryptocurrency but I think she’s too frugal and risk averse/ sensible.
