Twas 2013 on the match.com site
People were searching to find Mr./Ms. Right.
The photos were posted and profiles written with care,
In hopes that a suitor would soon be there.
Millions were sending emails across the net,
hoping the black hole had not swallowed them yet.
Off to the computer to login and view those online,
all the while knowing you will find someone define.
Now honesty! now, respect! Now, humor and such!
On, thoughtfulness! On, affection! on appreciation and laughter-is that too much?!
To a partner in life! and butterflies in the stomach wall!
Now view away! Wink away! Email away all!
Sprint to your computer, and give a signal if you dare,
Independence, grounded, creativity, quick wit and care!
But I exclaimed, ‘ere I logged off the site,
“Good luck to all, and to all a good-night!”
