baby’s got a hot blog by michael mark

Red Bubble keep calm and write poetry t-shirt

Let me preface this by assuring you that only parts of this poem written by my husband are true.

I have more than 8000 unique visitors. 🙂

Baby’s Got A Hot Blog

She tells her darkest secrets
to her 8000 unique visitors.

Staring into her screen so passionately
I believe it could melt.
I would.

When I whisper my fear
that I am losing her to her audience
she looks in my eyes and says,
“That would make a great status update.”

If it was another man, I’d fight,
but there are just too many of them.

She gets 15 new friend requests a day
and they are better listeners,
more supportive.

She tweets that she’s on her fourth iced tea and
they instantly respond she is their hero.
I admit I don’t do that.
She’s better off with them.

Our sex is by the white light
of her iPad that shares our bed,
its rapid, rhythmless pings
destroying my concentration.

I start thinking,
they are watching, commenting,
clicking their thumbs up, sharing helpful tips,
feeling she is more with them than me.

I am sure we will stay in touch.
She won’t defriend me.
She hates to lose followers.
And of course there’s my side of the family
who don’t amount to much but then
they have friends and so on.

At dinner I will break the news
by changing my relationship status
on Facebook.

This poem was originally published on Empty Mirror.

  1. This is just classic. Maybe you could surprise Michael with a bucket list item that includes a resort that is an electronic free zone. That or we could all begin to friend him on FB. 😉

  2. lol I wonder why my husband’s ode to the blog poem would say. Or maybe I don’t want to know. 😉

  3. And you know what Michael? Today’s status update is tomorrow’s blog post and, in my world, the next day’s puzzle! I can’t imagine anyone “de-friending” you.

  4. My husband has got me on schedule as far as the blog and the rest of the house goes.. LOL.. He had to reel me in back to the real world.

  5. That was great! Hysterical too. I think most husbands feel that way when their better half blogs. I have to let my hubby read this one lol. Love it!
