Anti-Social Media

The promising glow of a new digital world
Excitement and intrigue seem about to unfurl
Scrolling down the mundanity of endless walls
The euphoric premise quickly begins to fall

The hashtag mind maze of disconnectivity
A zombie drudging waste of collectivity
Polluted hollow words spill forth in black hole clouds
Hours frittered away, no reason to feel proud

Another point to share, like, comment and despise
Another plank, food porn, cute kitten, no surprise
More inaction at an unjust world most violent
A million outcries from pixels dead silent

Trending celebrity emptiness, friendship culls
No daring escapades, yet still plenty of trolls
A dazzling life journal without real meaning
More unkind comments only good for print-screening

Living in a reality we now resent
But seas of cameras to capture each moment
We exchange private pics, controversial, racy
Without the intimacy, you interface me,

I look on, you switch off
I reach out, you log in…
