He never ceased to wonder

At the mystery of 

Human nature 

The sheer Volume of quiet

Made the silence complete

When at his peak

Friends called him to speak

Perceived at his lowest

Suddenly, they became slowest

To Call

To Visit

To Tweet

To Viber 

To Text

To Facebook

To FaceTime 

To WhatsApp 

To Skype 

To Linked-In

To Instagram

To iMessage

To Snapchat

To Pinterest 

To Google+

To Email

Or even to Snail Mail 

Oh! how quickly 

They turned tail

He sat and wondered 

Where had all the 

Good Samaritans gone?

Then he remembered,

You only needed ONE
