Insight, advice, news and chit chat

Recently Michael spotted a tweet about a competition to win a “MIMOBOT” which is a USB drive character. This was a post by Dan Zarella, the Social Media Scientist, on his blog.

I love writing poems and I love unicorns so I felt compelled to enter. I could love Dan Zarella but haven’t talked to him yet (but I will!). Here is the poem – please let me know what you think of it?

My competition entry

If a unicorn came to you as you left the corner shop
Said “I am made of magic” and I can make your life “pop”
Would you believe him? Would you happily surrender?
Would you chase the rainbow – go on a rainbow bender?

Or would common sense prevail – and a sense of calm take over
Would you realise that there is no quick fix – no lucky four leaf clover
Would you think “this unicorn has told me that he can make a change
But I can’t place eggs all in one place – I have to have a range”

If this happened to me, here is my advice
You need to check if this is true – and figure out the price
Ask the unicorn to email you
and his proposal you’ll review
You’ll see if there is anything that proves his approach is new
Consider it carefully – get back to him soon – of course!
I would believe a unicorn more than I’d believe a horse.
