Social Media Poetry: Meet The New Dork — Same as the Old Dork?

March 8, 2010

THE NEW DORK – Entrepreneur State of Mind (Jay-Z ft Alicia Keys Spoof)

Now I’m in the blogosphere,
Now I’m in the twitterverse
Fans get so immersed,
But I’m a nerd forever
I’m the new Zuckerberg,
And since my website
I been cookin dough
like a chef servin killa-bytes
Used to be the basement,
Back at my mom’s place
Buildin web traffic
so that we could sell an ad space
Make way for the
One man businesses
Bail outs finished with
White collar criminals
New sega genesis
Entrepreneur time
Makin big plans
To dominate the online

Yeah, I’m on YouTube,
this is one man
Sharin’ google revenue,
With songs on my webcam
Science is the new art,
Databases day to day
Geeks spreadin’ sheet smarts,
Hustle, make the data pay
I could be in Valleywag plus Geekologie
Tell from my avatar,
That I’m most definitely
The New Dork,
Social networks – what dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re the New Dork
This V.C. money is brand new,
The geek is now damn cool
Let’s hear it for new dorks, new dorks, new dorks

Catch me up in Techcrunch,
Right on the homepage
Hell, I’m on Gizmodo,
In a photo bout a phone craze
And I’m up in Mashable,
weekend trip to New York
Bar pitty, 1oak, parties full of New Dorks
Now I’m pitchin business plans,
From the backs of napkans
Micro-lend to Africans,
Monetize Kazakastan

Catch me up on linked-in, Dog, C.E.O.
You can see where I be,
With the I.P.O.
Now I’m up in skinny jeans,
Now a hipster’s lurkin’
Used to be a reject,
But now I’m steady jerkin’
Now my glasses mainstream,
Now the girlies eyein me
Popular kids copy me,
The new swag is irony
Comin’ from the small time,
Girls couldn’t find me
Now I scale models,
Like I climb on top of Heidi
Start big trends,
with tweets that I pass on
You should follow me,
cuz I’m friends with Ashton

No, I didn’t write this! Mashable posted it first. I did get a laugh out of it! I did write a poem about twitter last summer during the 3:15 Experiment.

For some real poetry, ride the Poetry Train! And for some of my poetry, go here or here for poetry videos and broadsides.
