Fakebook Hero...

Fakebook Hero...

The keyboard is your cape,
You hide, as you type your hate,
Pretending to be someone you're not,
It's not real! But have you just "forgot!"
Social media becomes your shiny mirror,
Another selfie! with a little more lip filler,
The time comes when you feel alone,
Everybody, likes a good old moan,
But don't live a lie, on your mobile phone,
As people still feel, your heart of stone!
There she goes,
A Fakebook hero!
A pretender,
Everybody knows!
There he goes,
A Fakebook hero,
A cheater,
Without a soul!
Why have friends, if you won't talk to them on the street?
Is it just to be a spy?
Is it so you can judge?
Or is it somebody else's life, you so desperately need?
I'll let you all into a little secret, most of what you read, isn't actually for real!
But there you go again, spreading those lies,
Thinking you're some sort of Hollywood prize!
Screenshot after screenshot!
Look at what's been said,
Maybe they're going through a hard time, so say it face to face,
Not on social media hell!
But,
There she goes,
A Fakebook hero!
A pretender,
Everybody knows!
There he goes,
A Fakebook hero,
A cheater,
Without a soul!
Refresh the page,
Instead of hate,
Play a different game!
Remember,
We're all the same!
So put away your cape,
You're no hero,
You're just been fake,
Behind your phone,
A Fakebook hero?
A hateful zero?
Try to be real,
Only you'll know...

Thanks very much Tony, you're right. it's a kind of bitter sweet thing, communication face to face would certainly be better without it. It's a tricky one, โ˜ฎ&๐Ÿ’œ brother! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š
