The Lyrics

Now, I could use emoticons to indicate the following, but I’ll use words instead: I exaggerate; I actually find these things mildly amusingly annoying. ;-)
They’re a scourge; you see these little objects every day.
They’re supposed to reveal something about yourself
I won’t embellish the views I send to you;
If my meaning don’t come through.
I guess it means my sentiments not expressed well.

But not emoticons.
When I’ve feelings strong,
I won’t ’ffix these pictures on:
:-) :-( ;-D :-D :-9 :-O

The letters made from poked keys are enough; why winking eyes
Or some icon that’s appended to what you write?
Just a lexicon, my world, no comma-concocted guys.
A colon’s a site up which to shine a light (it’s tight).

Please, no emoticons!
If you’ve feelings strong,
Try to “ink” with pictures sans:
-------------------------------------

Yes, I know when you use typographic frowns
That you’re not feeling pissed but you’re feeling triste.
So often times it happens: missives littered with these banes. . .
In irreverence, where I like to see them least.

Pox on emoticons;
I have fixed feelings on
These pix things that pixels spawn,
Hollow emoticons,
Shallow emoticons,
Callow emoticons,
Emoticons. . .
