When Youtube had a Problem!

by DrFeelGood


Youtube sat in a corner, he wasn’t happy today. 
Daddy Google asked him whether he could help him out.

“What’s the matter son?” he enquired curiously. 
“Your son is harassing me,” replied Youtube to his daddy.

“Google+ you mean? What has he done?”
“I’m ashamed to call him my brother, Dad!

He’s uploading nasty comments, and slanging for no reason,
The beautiful videos I upload lose their glory because of him.”

“G+ come here!” Daddy shouted loudly,
“Why do you do that?” He demanded to his son.

G+ was quiet as Youtube was venting,
“You ruin my favorite videos, you post hateful comments.

Why do you write a racist joke or post a homophobic slang?
Why do spread hatred, irrelevant to my video?”

G+ had no answer but was thinking very hard,
“All I do is upload the comments, I don’t write them myself.”

“Then who is behind this commotion??” Demanded Daddy Google. 
“No idea,” said a confused and perplexed G+.

G+ and his Daddy decided to investigate the matter,
Daddy called his cousin, Wiki to detect the solution. 

Wiki was a genius who stored years of info,
“Humans are behind this!” said Wiki to his cousin.

“But Humans had created us to spread useful knowledge.
What’d they get by harming their own creation?”

“I don’t know about that, but I’m sure they are humans,
We machines never abuse or degrade each other.”

“You’re right Wiki Uncle,” shouted G+ loudly, 
“Not all, but few, who write hate speech!

I post those comments unwillingly, I don’t want that to happen. 
I still apologize to Youtube for the chaos I create.”

“Not your fault, G+, I get what you mean.
It’s okay,” replied Youtube as he stood calm.

Daddy and his sons are still searching for the answer,
“Why do these humans fight and abuse each other?”

Hi there! This is a really interesting piece of work - allowing us to see the perspective of the internet, if it had one. I really like how you've personified Youtube, Wiki etc to seem like a normal family - almost relatable in the case of when something goes wrong.. and the "disappointed parent" comes along :P .

Also, I like the enjambment you've used to link ideas together - your poem flows really well and I like the ideas that are portrayed...making us question why is there all this hatred, why does there need to be?

The only criticism I have is that it seems more story-like in my eyes...but I enjoyed it nevertheless sooo well done :D

Fantasydragon here!
I must say that this is comical yet true. Why does the world have impure videos containing impure innuendoes?! *cries like crazy*
Now, on to the critique. Well, I can't find some stuff to critisize about. I think the only thing is that I am not sure of this was supposed to be like a song or poem that rhymes. For nothing rhymes. I know that some styles have no rhymes, but I am sort of perplexed here. But you don't need to change it. Not everything has to rhyme.

Good luck and keep writing!
Very truly yours,
fantasydragon01.

I believe it would be "... asked him if he could help him out." I really like your use of "enqired". The google+ seeming to be an antagonist is awesome. I like how it mostly gets resolved to be the humans fault (it always is). A pretty good piece. (danget, not long enough to count as a review)

Only thing I'd say is that this sounds a lot more like a short story than a poem. I guess it could come under narrative poem maybe, instead of dramatic.

I enjoyed it, btw :)

Changed it. Thanks for pointing out :)

I loved this. I am a big fan of satire, and you nailed it. While it was quite funny, you still had something intelligent to say and some really good questions to raise about humanity. It is a very difficult question though isn't it; why are we such arseholes? Lol, pardon my french.

The way you depicted google as the Dad, and google+ as the kid alongside youtube was brilliant. It was clever way of clarifying your point so that the audience can relate and understand what you are trying to say.

I am a youtuber as well, and I understand this definitely. People can be quite horrible behind a screen.

Legible.

DrFeelGood says...


Thank you for the kind words. But what is SGC? I dont understand that.

Hahahahahaha! Helloooo! This is Tay 01 here lover and great fan of an old film, Finding Nemo. And Hohoho! Hold your horses there, I see a funny poem coming haha. About the use of DADDY GOOGLE!!!!! Okay I have to calm down now I am getting to excited here and haha!

Okay. Nice poem though. And funny of course, as you can guess from the start of reading this review. Oh my gosh! What a humour your poem is. Alright, steady now......Oh dear. sorry but,

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Okay. What I wanted to say is that you have a nice poem with a nice story with nice rhymes and nice rhythm and also a nice question and conclusion. Not to say but, that is what people are doing now. And it's still true though, why are humans like that?

Not really mice of them though. Like nice.

I mean:

Not really nice of them though. Like mice. There.

Okay yes this review is to make you laugh (popefully, I mean hopefully HAHAHA!)

Okay that's it with laughing with me in a review Bye Bye Laughing!

Alright. Your poem still could use a LITTLE as in just a little more rhyme and that will sort things out. Now I have to go bye (types in a rush)

~~Tay01




Tay01 says...

Not rwallt of them should be. No really nice of them done bye!

Hi!
This poem is amazing! I definitely chuckled while reading through it. It's a very cool and different way to write about a really awful topic that affects so many people. You keep it light-hearted enough to keep people reading about it.
I liked how you incorporated four different websites and gave them all a relation to each other.

"Daddy and his sons are still searching for the answer,
“Why do these humans fight and abuse each other?"
Ending it with the question and having the websites searching for the answer was a perfect way to finish it.

I honestly don't have any critiques for it. I enjoyed reading it from beginning to end. When I clicked on the title I thought it would be silly in the it's entirety but I was pleasantly surprised the see it had a message too!
Awesome work!
