Emoting little bytes

#Bloganuary Writing Tip: What emojis do you like to use?

What was that? Why do you assume
That emoji use is something I consume?
Annoying little blighters that would sully my page
when they appear, winking and blinking; they cause me rage.
Meant to subtly enhance a tone,
they change one’s voice to something unknown.
If I can’t write a coherent phrase
A cartoon blip won’t improve my ways.
A polly I knew texted only in emoji –
She was once the Minister in charge of diplomacy.
Effective? Who are the ones that can really say?
Egyptian hieroglyphics may have saved the day!
