Mr Emoticon did not have a face
To indicate his feelings
On the front of his head
But an arrangement of letters, punctuation marks
And numbers
Made their home on there instead

A colon and a parenthesis a – πŸ™‚ or πŸ™
Could mean he was happy or sad
A semi colon and a closing parenthesis – πŸ˜‰
Means he’s winking and glad

An underscore between two asterisks – *_*
Suggest he’s seen a bonnie lass
A colon before an ampersand – :&
Means his tongue is getting tied quite fast

But when he frees his tongue
With a colon and a capital P – πŸ˜›
He knows there’s no time to waste
With a cheeky wink and a little smiley – πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

And if it turns into a chevron
Followed by the number three – <3
It means he’s fallen madly in love
It’s plain for all to see

And the women he loved
Filled his face with smilies
Most of them found it quite sweet
Except for one who plugged in a keyboard
Dumped him
And then pressed

Delete.

πŸ™ *_* :& πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ <3 πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
