Plenty of Fish:An Observation of Online Dating


There’s plenty of fish in the sea,

Plenty of fish, indeed.

POF of online fame

Could chastely be call,

Catch and release, if you please.

“I’m still married,

“It’s complicated, you see,

“But, maybe we can be,

“‘Just friends.’

“(with benefits?)”

“I’m really 22, I just like older women.

“You wanna have fun?

“Can you lend me some money?”

But then, the gems do clear the forest

Of subs and doms, and

Those gloriously gorgeous 

Gift card grifters,

To reveal an artist, a poet,

A righter of wrongs

A doer of things

or, merely, someone,

who can


And the sparks fly,

And the flirting begins,

Numbers exchanged,

“I’ll give you a ring…”

It goes on for hours,

Sometimes for days,

After a week,

Into friend zone, you’ve strayed.

So be quick on your mark,

Don’t let her outta your sight,

Cuz like any good fish in the sea,

She’s up, and over,

And on to, the next
