I did a google search
For Men’s Wearhouse at the mall.
That was 16 months ago,
And it’s still here on my wall.
I looked to buy a negligee
Just as a friendly gift.
Now I get twelve ads a day
Through which I must sift.
I looked up local dry cleaners,
And now endure the taunt
Of “targeted ads” for dry cleaning
In Georgia and Vermont.
I searched my ex’s name as well
Out of curiosity.
Not only did I regret it then,
But now I literally can’t unsee.
And where the Chippendales ad
Came from, I can’t guess,
But now it is a daily part
Of my social network’s mess.
I cleared my cookies and my cache,
Reset my “ad I.D.”
I still get ads on my Facebook wall,
But at least they’re not for me.
