Upping The Emoji Game

Get by with a little help from my friends

Here's the thing with friends

If you pay attention

the learning never ends.

Being a Boomer

I've got room for

major escalation in my emoji game

To my fumble fingered shame.

Enter Mike Singleton

who shared knowledge- just for fun

That opens a new world for me.

Now, using the laptop

My emoji game is in one stop

Putting new life into my work.

No need for the dashes

the ellipses and slashes

the dots and the blots

Now I can use emoji to give space in my work.

(See?! Those little hand writing! See?!)

And with a double click add doubtfully relevant Gifs.

I am a doubtfully relevant Gif

Thanks Mike!

Follow me for more inane poems and occasional cogent writing.

Follow Mike for lots of reasons, too!

And, in the styling of Mike: here's a version of the song I enjoy.

Comments welcome!

    I do enjoy when you just get playful with words, Judey! This is another pleasant little ditty and nice nod to Mr Singleton. The end image is great and I shall listen to Mr Cocker later. What a voice.
