Befriending Wall.

He lives out his life on this online wall,
420 characters define his life's stories.

Friends from everywhere, some made right here,
his solemn duty is to post, comment and update.

Family he has almost forgotten to take into account,
remind him of their existence with a relationship request.

Here, it is all about the glee in his life,
and the gakusei takes over sometimes, to gloat.

sometimes this wall requires immediate attention,
then he better not forget to tag, those concerned.

He has loved here, fought here, lost here, found here,
been poked, hugged, kissed, courted, and even thwarted.

And in the tradition of what a wise poetic man once said,
he says to himself, "Good walls make good friends".

This is poem 11 for Robert Lee Brewer's April PAD Challenge 2011. The prompt: "Profile Poem".

The form is couplets, a set of 7 in all.
