The Twit That Could Not Tweet

A tiny tweet,
not even a tweet but a twit, so small was it,
send out to find a home in Kingdom of Twitter
who’s king and master was at war with Mars God;

The little twit held back,
not desiring to be placed in a place that wasn’t safe,
it was all dressed, sharp and new
coat gleaming white, eyes shining and bright
ready for flight
but not ready to fight;

It gazed into the murky waters of Twitterland
looking at many twits, twats and twiddles swimming ‘round,
drowning in a bottomless pit
of words, ideas and wit;

It was too much
easy to be lost in so much,
little twit drew back, shaking its head
took off its clothes
and went to bed instead.
