      5-28-14 - Use a new(er) word in a poem. 

      Merriam-Webster recently added 150 new terms to its collegiate dictionary, including 

      • tweep, 
      • hashtag, 
      • selfie, 
      • unfriend, 
      • paywall,
      • big data, 
      • social networking, 
      • and more.

      I did sign up for Twitter

      But I don’t think I’m a tweep.

      I have a house full of e-waste

      And narry a broom to sweep.

      Maybe if I tried some gamification

      My housekeeping skills would bloom

      Or perhaps a little crowdfunding

      Could pay a maid to clean my rooms!

      I don’t know the reason for hashtags

      But perhaps it’s to garner #attention

      To your latest selfie photograph

      Or some brand new digital invention.

      The computer age marches on

      I can’t stop it, don’t you see?

      The big data keeps on growing

      Without any help from me!
