The Folly of Facebook Friend-requests - 12sep21

Friend requests

are one of the many follies of Facebook.

For if a stranger reaches out,

yet the months go by

with nary a note, a comment,

a question, or a meme

then they haven’t really become a friend,

have they?

They’ve just become an audience member.

And audience members are great

if you have a group,

and wish to use it as a soap box

upon which to proclaim your answers

to all the world’s woes.

Life is short and friendships are rare.

They’re worth the trouble they take to cultivate.

Like the trouble a young Anakin took

to refurbish the protocol droid

he salvaged from a scrap heap.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
