Medusa's Discovery

Another day. Another stone

Another potential boyfriend gone 

Meeting face to face won't work for me 

Because those I meet tend to freeze

But I need someone, I am alone

In my garden full of stone

But, my latest victim proposed to me

Just before he screamed, "let me free!" 

He wailed, "Have you tried a dating site?!"

"Like Bumble or Match, or something like!"

I pondered over his last words

These were things of which I’ve heard

So I pulled out my new Macbook 

Opened Tinder and began to look

A cute smile, a pretty face 

Online dating was the perfect place

I could text, call, and even video chat!

Now nothing is holding me back

Who knew that I could bypass this affliction

With my new online dating addiction?
