Facebook Lament

Writers are an emotional lot and for the most part live on Facebook. I propose, therefore, this slightly altered song as the official Facebook lament, based on “Release Me,” by songwriter Eddie Miller, whose song was covered by many.

UnFriend Me

Please unfriend me, let me go,
For I don’t like you anymore.
To waste our tags would be a sin;
Unfriend me and let me like again.

I have found a new friend dear.
LOL I want her near.
Her pokes are warm while yours are cold;
Unfriend me my darling, let me go.

Please unfriend me, can’t let you see?
You’d be a fool to status me.
To live a lie would bring us pain,
So unfriend me and let me like again.


A Classical Composer and Friend of Flash Fiction Online

If you like classical music at all, you should check out the Naxos Classical Music Spotlight. It’s essentially a commercial for Naxos recordings, but what a commercial! Twenty minutes of music from recent Naxos releases, interviews with conductors (and composers if they’re still alive), and historical and biographical information as well.

I mention this not only because I love the podcast (I was the first person to review it on iTunes), but also because we have gained a license to use music composed by James Hartway, a modern American composer, on the site. I thank Mr. Hartway and the Naxos label very much for this privilege.

If you’d like to listen to the podcast, click here. Visit Naxos of America, Inc. at, and purchase classical CDs at Jim Hartway’s site is located at
