The girl with the dragon tattoo

The girl with the dragon tattoo
Yes! I see her often online
Chirping away on her face-book status
Telling me what’s on her mind

Every outrageous chat she makes
While speaking out her dormant lines
There is hurricane of spiteful abuses
Clouding her freedom and her rights

Clever thoughts, untold secrets
She swirls them into the path of crime
Cynics chop her words to pieces
And subject her to cruel trials

Should she seal her choral lips
And silently watch the world pass by
Or should she make a marked difference
By changing rhythm, rhyme and the chime

The girl with the dragon tattoo
Yes, she was the one I saw online
The world helplessly watched her disappear
As she faded away sans light

There is no moment for truth
Fanatics broke her sturdy pride

My entry for Big Tent Poetry Circus where we had to choose a title of one book, and use it as a line for our poem from the list of Best Sellers, and I chose THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, by Stieg Larsson

    This is a really clever poem. I love your use of half-rhyme (eg online/mind, status/abuses/pieces) And an unusual subject - you've picked up the book title and run with it.

  5. Very neat and rhythmic weave of words. Atta gurl, Pushpi.

  6. Poor Dragon Girl..sad to see her reviled despised and broken by dross.Let's hope she re emerges as a strong dragon lady who treats these types of attacks with the disdain they deserve.

  9. I'm with Viv and the rhymes. Keeps the momentum moving for me. And I quite like "Chirping away" ... such a great image.

    Nicely done, Pushpi. How many people are adversely affected by facebook, I wonder.
