Modern day language

OMG[oh my god] I here you say,
WTF[what the f**k] is with all the acronyms?
AIUI[as I understand it] its the modern way.
ISTM[it seems to me] a foriegn tongue,
WTH[what the hell] does it all mean?
IMHO[in my humble opinion] its english gone wrong.

FUBAR[f***ed up beyond all recognition] in fact,
IDGI[I don't get it] this new vocab.
IC[I see] now I totally lack.
OBTW[Oh, by the way] its not lack, its I fail,
SCNR[sorry, could not resist] totally random,
RTFM[Read the f***ing manual] maybe then I can prevail.

GOK[God only knows] who can help,
ATM[at the moment] I suffer alone,
NFI[no f***ing idea] I suddenly yelp.
IWBNI[it would be nice if] I had some clue,
IS[I’m sorry] for my poor attempt,
HHIS[hanging head in shame] this is all so new.

SETE[smiling ear to ear] I kindly then say to you,
HOAS[hold on a sec] I can assist,
FWIW[for whatever its worth] it took me time too.
ICOCBW[I could of course be wrong] but with practise,
IME[in my experience] it gets easier
UR[you are] not completely cactus.

  I really enjoyed this. Apparently, all the texting and social networking sites are robbing us of intimate communication skills... And ironically enough, I felt a lot like I was reading something from a robot while reading this. All the acronyms serve a visual purpose of almost deceiving the reader into thinking we're reading some type of code. When we break up the acronyms into the words that you THOUGHTFULLY provided, the words come out in a monotonous, robotic voice. I think you did an excellent job with this.
