Lately it seems I’ve had a larger than usual number of folks pretending to be someone else trying to befriend me on Facebook. Here’s an eye-ku I wrote about one of them who I was pretty sure had lifted her screen name from a short story by Roald Dahl. To her credit, after a series of vain attempts to convince me she was genuine, she eventually apologized, confessed her name was indeed assumed and claimed the whole charade had begun as a joke. Her true identity remains a mystery.

I’m bottle dogged by
Brandy disguised as cognac
A pour mask cur raid
