Teen Poetry From Carpenter Branch.
Teens from Carpenter Branch have been honing their poetic skills at Carpenter’s monthly Poetry Corner. Their topic for December’s Poetry Corner was Facebook. Here are some of their poems:
Facebook is the face of insincerity
of doubt & the face of shyness.
It’s saying your personality in real life
isn’t enough. So make a facebook profile
and be this & that, but don’t ever be
the real you. Never actually be serious,
but be what we want you to be.
Change to be that facebook person.
Its name ultimately is Fakebook.

Fierce – wild, untamed.
Accelerator – The in thing, you got
facebook you’re somebody.
Cyber-Bullying – the mean.
Epidemic – The disease that spreads and kills.
Baggage – Having to keep-up with the
Omen – The badluck of a good kid
to get caught up in the mess it creates.
Outrage – The roar of anger of the people
who easily say things that can’t be
Keen – The sharp end of the sword everyone
wants to have, but soon people
will find out it’s not always that way.
