Copy & Paste

By Bud Lemire

Why should I copy and paste
To me, it's such a waste
It might be the latest trend
But it's not time I would spend

Use original words, and speak from the heart
Don't dribble off others, it smells like a fart
Nobody should have to copy and paste, it's a matter of will
These repetitious words, are like a bad tasting pill

I believe in the words, not the way that its done
These childish acts, are not for everyone
Drop the copy and paste part, write something new
Use your mind and heart, and that will do

Why does everyone feel, that if it says copy and paste
Then on their page, the same words must be placed
If someone jumped off a cliff, would you do that too
People will respect you, for being a original you

So do it right, by using your head
Don't act too quickly, go where you're lead
Exclude the words “Copy & Paste”
Then your words will be better embraced

Author Note:

This is for all the people who have words on their
page, which end in a Copy & Paste this to your
wall. It's a Pet Peeve of mine. I prefer originality.
I prefer leaving the Copy & Paste to your Wall off.
If people like something enough, they will do that.
Next week, we'll talk about why “I need a hug, I
wonder if anyone reading this will give me a hug”
bothers me so much too.
