Joe Emoji

Oh! Jeez.
Bless me.
Gonna sneeze.

These li’l things
We place in texts
Instead of words
Make speaking a breeze.

But what do they mean?
I mean, what do they say?
That verbs are bad
And pics, the bee’s knees?

‘Cause I like to talk.
I respect my speech.
Rather write my prose.
Than paint decrees.

I’ve had it with clip art.
Don’t rob me of thought.
Articulation, Joe Emoji.
Resemble language? Let’s not.
