I have a friend I’ve never met
I met him on the Internet

He knows my birthday, I know his,
we’ve both shared photos of our kids,

We both hold not dissimilar views,
and share the same alarming news,

He comments on my frequent posts,
he’s always kind, not bellicose.

A cheerful word I always get
from this chap that I’ve never met

The flaw in this new friend I’ve got?
Apparently he’s just a Bot.
