Ninety-nine friends

Ninety-nine friends
Is this last friend before one hundred?
Or one friend too many?
Ninety-nine friends.
Countdown to one hundred
But still,
Ninety-nine friends.
One more to go

Will you Poke me?
Will you Like me all the time?
I need one more friend to love me,
Just one more friend and I’m the queen.
One more friend and I can close
My perfect circle of love.

I feel warmth and happiness.
I feel love pouring down the line.
Ninety-nine avatars
Framed in their colored squares.
Ninety-nine lies
One more to go.
One more lover
To make it one hundred liars.

Will you Poke me?
Will you Like me all the time?
I need one more friend to love me,
Just one more friend and I’m the queen.
One more friend and I can close
My perfect circle of love.
