Christmas at Google+ is all year aroundBack in 2013 I wrote a poem about G+. I thought it might be nice to repost it for this year's holiday season.Christmas at Google+ is all year around ...
Once again it’s Christmas time here at Google Plus,
so I will try to do a rhyme, but one with little fuss.
I’ll try to express with just a few words
how good it feels to be one with the nerds,
with the artists, the musicians, the movers and the thinkers,
the nice and the helpful and even the trolls and the stinkers.
To be part of this amazing community
has changed my life to no small degree.
Just a very few years ago, when asked about social media
I had to go and look it up in my encyclopaedia.
Facebook was where I spend my time
And you will agree that’s not a good sign.
But then a friend with my well-being at heart
Invited me to Google+ and thank god I was smart.
I followed him on the unfamiliar track
And believe me my friend I never looked back.
I dove right in, since I had loads to learn,
but I had plenty of help and now it’s my turn
to pass on the knowledge that was so freely provided
to guide our Goobies the way I was then guided.
I have loads of fun to lend a hand
to show newcomers around the G+ land.
To make sure they know there is plenty of support
and that of help and advise they will never run short.
On Google+ you’ll have Christmas all year around.
Goodwill and help can always be found.
This community is amazingly giving
I could tell you some stories I am not kidding.
People who’ve never met in life
are suddenly to be found right there by your side
when down you feel and in need of some kindness.
Their help and support is absolutely priceless.
There is no other place on the entire planet
Like Google+, it’s like a huge magnet
for everybody out there who has something to share,
who believes that selfless giving is fair.
While the rest of the world sometimes seems overly greedy,
here knowledge, art and help is distributed freely.
If you join in and share what you love
you will quickly find that all of the above
Will happen to you too, I promise you hands down
Because at Google+ Christmas is all year around.
Merry Christmas everybody (or Happy Holidays, whichever you prefer) and may the Plus be with you,+Jens Graikowski
