Meme's Disease

These four words they never please.

But yes, it’s true,

I got Meme’s Disease.


About my ailment I was not sure

Until the Doc confirmed

And said, “there’s no cure.”


But now this consumes my life

And I write this poem

To explain my strife.


Every word I speak or dream

Must in some way

Reference a Meme


I know you think this could be fun.

But trust me.

It sucks for everyone.


At first, I thought I may gain friends.

But nobody likes the boy,

That upon Memes depends.


So now I offer some simple advice.

Keep your Memes inside.

You’ll thank me twice.
