Viral Joke

Viral Joke
2016 02 19

Samuel sips coffee in the book cafe
after typing a snarky joke in twitter,
then pauses, afraid his joke would go viral,
causing outrage from sea to shining sea,
and ruin his chances at publication,
or winning a famous prestigious prize,
then chuckles amused at his baseless fear,
knowing nobody will notice his joke,
like throwing a petal in the Grand Canyon,
so he clicks tweet button, heart beating fast,
stares at people walking by the green window,
feeling the Earth spin though infinite space,
and dreams about reigning as a good king
in a stone castle by the singing sea.
