Where Are Those Thousands of Mute Hubbers?: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Daily scrolling down the Hub Pages Feed

I just cannot but find it somewhat strange

about thousands hubbers without a need

to join for constructive thought exchange.

The same fifteen hubbers -- or so

from day to day, from week to week

and that same number just can't grow

like "monopolizing" the Feed, so to speak.

On a merry-go-round of praising each other

not really the feedback on a submitted post

making it so obvious doesn't seem to bother

that's what Feed seems to mean to the most.

Much like a daily "group therapy session"

"feeding" each others' emotional needs

for some a place to ease a depression

but little to do with any of those reads.

So that's why I don't participate at all

following example of those many others

not wishing to sound like a first class troll

but not in any need for such literary brother.

And maybe I would even change my mind

if I could ever notice one negative review

but don't start with me with being unkind

I'm just being honest, seeing what's true.
