It is reported that Jeremy Corbyn has closed his Facebook account, prompting speculation that he has something to hide.
Now Facebook’s had some dreadful press,
And really seems in great distress,
As people on the planet see,
It really cannot trusted be.
The cry goes out, “Close your account!”
For what they do is tantamount,
To stealing info about you,
Then give it someone else to view.
When I say ‘give’ I’m being kind,
’Cos if we look we’re sure to find,
Our data’s not given at all,
But sold for money overall.
But back to closing your account,
You might expect this would amount,
To clicking on a button which,
Would let you go without a hitch.
But not so fast, no button there,
It’s hard to find one anywhere;
And even if you stare all day,
There seems to be no easy way,
That you can exit this platform,
Which for some has become the norm.
But one man’s managed it, it seems,
Promoting him in my esteem;
But then one starts to wonder why,
And what dark purpose might belie,
His reason for the effort he,
Has made so neither you nor me,
Can check up further on his past,
And he can clean the slate at last.
But doubtless what was there is known,
So someone with a mobile phone,
Will find out what he wants to hide,
And spread it out there far and wide.
So watch this space for more to read,
And things expressed in word and deed;
Then, notwithstanding use of shade,
New revelations might be made.
