From The New Yorker, May 16, 2011 issue. Sherman Alexie has a sonnet about Facebook called, conveniently, “The Facebook Sonnet”. Here are a few lines:
"Let’s exhume, resume and extend
Childhood. Let’s play the games
That occupy the young. Let fame
And shame intertwine."
It’s a brilliant poem, full of barbs that, I feel, really dig at the farce that is Facebook. Read the rest at The New Yorker.
