Time's Man, Facebook's Face
by Greg Asimakoupoulos
Posted: December 19, 2010
A poetic profile of Mark Zuckerberg…
The face of Facebook is on Time
and thus the subject of this rhyme.
The status of Mark Zuckerberg
is clear for all to see.
But not his skin. He's twenty-six.
His baby-face contends with zits.
Time's man for this year is a kid,
but smart. I kid you not.
His profile page speaks for itself
with education, fame and wealth.
This prodigy may seem a nerd,
but he has countless friends.
Mark's made his mark (and billions too)
and made it fun for me and you
to reconnect with long-lost chums
we haven't seen in years.
And yet I wonder, Mr. Z,
in spite of your celebrity
(behind those eyes that rarely blink)
are you alive to life?
