Monetize your life

They walk towards you blindly, often stopping in the middle of the sidewalk, completely oblivious to the other pedestrians. Ear plugs in, they see only a tiny device they hold in their hands, tapping it hesitantly or in rapid sequence. Addicted to a parallel universe, deaf to traffic and bird calls, blind to sunshine and landscape, dumping personal information into the grand data base.

I’ll be generous; I’ll suggest a business model.

Monetize your life

Monetize your life! Put advertisements on your face! Crowdsource pursuit of pleasure, join the social media race.

Be the first entrepreneur whose business is yourself! Get some money for your data, you'll be on the path to wealth.

Remember this my Facebook friend, what you give away for free is a product bought and sold by some other company.

So beat the others to it! Don't be shy, (too late for that). Just turn the tables, join the game it's only tit for tat.

    1. Thanks Deibi! Like I said in an early post, these poems are rhyme and meter driven. Lately they bring to mind the jump-rope rhymes of childhood. “Not last night, but the night before, twenty-four robbers came a-knockin’ at my door…” The beat goes on!
