My ridiculous Facebook caseWhat was the matter, really?
I wanted to communicate
by poetry and pictures of some beauty,
but people were offended
and reported me for nothing,
for no bad intentions,
for some accidental nudity
without a trace of sexual intentions.
Thus I was reported for the beauty of my art,
for love of beauty was my only crime and weakness,
so I was disabled, blocked and exiled
with admittance back on the condition only
of a snapshot of a legal ID,
but I am not American but a most foreign citizen
and have made no transactions and paid Facebook nothing,
so they have no business in demanding my ID.
I must refuse it both for personal and reasons of integrity,
and I can manage without Facebook,
while their treatment of a generous and loving user
interested in digital communication only
is no good publicity or credit for the Facebook formalism.
