Rhymes & Reasons
A Book Club Extraordinaire

Posted: August 9, 2009
Celebrating the phenomenon of Facebook…
It's a phenom known as Facebook
where lost friends are found
and parallel paths cross again.
It's a treasure hunt unlike
I've ever been on
where I'm digging up names from back when.
It's like I'm a detective.
I am sleuthing online
for a classmate I knew in high school.
And like magic they surface
on my PC screen.
It's a treasure more costly than jewels.
It's amazing, addictive.
It gives you a rush.
One click of the mouse and you see
what old chums are doing,
have planned or regret
or what, with the Lord's help, they'll be.
It's a book club of members
who are writing the book
that keeps growing in length day by day.
And while not a bestseller
(much better, it's free),
it has content for which gladly you'd pay.
It's an online reunion
without leaving home.
You share pictures, advice, recipes.
There's no need to be lonely
with Facebook around.
Just log on and have fun.
It's a breeze.
