Comment Versus Like

This is a standing consideration of mine:🧘‍♀️
Comment Versus LIke

I do appreciate a ‘Comment’ as opposed to ‘Like’.
It is much supportive, justifying and confirming.
There is sloth in Like.
It says, “I’ve seen your work, but lack the drive
And will to analyze or criticise.”
I myself make efforts to do either/or or both.
It is a way to honor writer, painter – anyone whose entry
Rates a thoughtful, grateful, grading,
Not the least, a kindly greeting.

Maybe Facebook has to change the word
From quasi-turd (my own deduction) to another
More demanding term.
Do you, dear reader disagree, agree,
Or have you never given idea scrutiny?

Here’s a thought:
Try to enter some prioritized idea to see
What feedback you receive online.
Try to feel the feeling that it gives: some fine
Bouquet of gladness or the slight hint of rejection.
Unresponsiveness a no-no;
It produces endmost disenchantment,
For we human beings need to know we are alive
In mirrored eyes of others, any form of love
Much better than no love at all.
Like is often meanly small.
