My Daily Word – Eternal

As a writer, it doesn’t hurt to remember that what we post online becomes an eternal representation of ourselves.  Once it’s out there….it’s out there:  linked, pinged, forwarded, copied, pasted, and otherwise flung into the far reaches of the world wide web.

I watched a local story on the television last night where a mother left her two children in the car while she went grocery shopping.  She did leave the car running, but her 8 month old was left in the care of a 7 year old.  What??!!

A concerned woman in the parking lot called in the cops…who thankfully have arrested the woman.

Here’s where the “stupid keeps coming” (love that phrase Teresa),  the woman is pleading her innocence, but after bailing out of jail she talks about what she did on her MySpace page.  She titles it with one very obnoxious word:  BUSTED!

Now they get to use her words against her in court. 🙂

So, here’s my quirky senryu for the day, and remember…anything you post…is now on an eternal journey through cyberspace.

wordsshare, publish, go, send

a fool and her ideas

are soon parted


Have a brilliant day, and keep writing ya’ll!

  1. great poem, and too true 🙂

  2. Excellent point! I always tell people to never say anything online that you wouldn’t say in a roomful of strangers. I recently read a snarky, profanity laced blog post that not only turned me off from the blogger, but also from the small press where the individual works. I think the young lady thought she was being humorous, but she simply came across as condescending and foul.

    Sometimes I get blown away by the kinds of things that people post on their MySpace and Facebook pages with no thought as to who can see this stuff! It can be a real turn-off.

    Thanks for posting on the subject!

  3. Hi Mom 🙂
