We have to ban Emojis now
Emojis are the bane of Man
(at least the ones who write).
We have to ban Emojis now!
You know that I am right.

That stupid little smiling face
was just the start, you know.
Now there are a million more,
I hate to tell you so.

So this is what it’s come down to,
no need to say a word,
just send some silly image off.
It’s really quite absurd.

At one time we were literate.
Yes, once upon a time
And people would write poetry
with rhythm and with rhyme.

Now we just send smart-phone texts.
No, we don’t even speak.
We trade Emojis back and forth,
just like some weirdo geeks.

Soon language will be obsolete,
no need to speak or write.
Emojis will be all we use.
You know that I am right.

So we must make a stand right now
before this comes to be.
Don’t let Emojis ruin our world.
Let’s live Emoji free!
