Hold Up A Phone And Get Known!

So it seems everywhere far and wide people are no longer wanting to hide. They snap everything they do and then stick it online for all to view. They want to get Known and so that is today's a to z tone.

Hold the phone,
I'll get known.
Give me a snap.
No longer a sap.

Look at my umm junk.
I mean in my trunk.
Look at me sing.
I can bat around string.

Known like a cute cat.
I'll surely take that.
1,000,000 youtube hits,
Sure isn't the pits.

I can juggle and dance,
Maybe add in a prance.
I can steal a car.
Wow, I didn't get very far.

I am so cool.
Look, I can drool.
I can even rant away.
Hey, works for my bay.

I just want to be known.
A warm tingly tone.
That is what I want.
No unknown at my haunt.

Bring in the fame.
I'll do things not tame.
Like that cinnamon challenge thing.
Who cares if death is given a ring.

I will get known.
Fame for my final groan.
That is something of worth,
Even if I'm no longer on Earth.

Maybe I'll spur a reality TV show.
Hey, you never know.
Could pay dividends to my estate.
Add food to someone's plate.

So make me known.
Pick up that phone.
Snap what I do,
For all in the world to view.

Do you think you humans wanting to be known, like a dog loves a bone, has gone too far? What is the point at ones sand bar? Millions of people you never met like you? Whoopdi friggin doo. But to each their own. Good luck to all wanting to get known. I'll be happy with my singing bass and just being a little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. A selfie made easy seems the vogue
    Snap snap away and not even provoked
    The blazes with privacy
    "I want to get my selfie"
    When trouble brews then it is not a joke!

  11. I'd like to be known, but not for something idiotic like this. It's amazing how many girls, for example, have YouTube channels dedicated solely to them twerking. Not dancing, mind you, just that one stupid move over and over again, repackaged in different videos and different outfits.

    It's good to have valuable life skills.

  12. So you want your name in lights
    Start wearing shrink-wrapped tights
    Wear a great big floppy cape
    Go settle a bar-room scrape
    Go flying through the air
    As people below you stare
    Fight crime and go fight evil
    Do you think your name is Knievel
    Or you're in love with hot chick named Ms. Lane
    Or you're a bullfighter, so famous in Spain
    Better stay in your hammock and dream
    As you count bubbles in a swift moving stream

  20. My daughter doesn't like me to post about her on my blog, in case I embarrass her in front of her friends (who I'm sure wouldn't read my blog to begin with, but that's besides the point). ;) BUT, she'll post videos of herself on her social media, pics of her and her friends taking selfies in the bathroom, etc. And she'll even argue with folks on instant message or whatever... I've had to take her phone away more than once because of it. Teaching her discretion with what does and does not go public is not as easy as it should be!

  27. Occasionally I stroll through Facebook
    just to take a look
    at what my friends are doing
    to see if they're happy or stewing.
    Some must be on there every day
    showing what's going on in every way.
    Way too much info for me.
    They must not have a life, you see.
    Update their status many times a day
    showing their routine from work to play.
    But they think I'm the strange one
    rarely saying something instead of a ton.
