Summertime Rhymes- # 8 “Facebook Fallacy”

“Facebook Fallacy”

Lookin’ in, lookin’ out.

Through the looking glass.

Reality distorted,

Fixed amoral morass.

Habitual finger tapping,

Edging on the screen,

Brightness ebbs,

Net’s spiderwebs,

Catching all the lies between.

Time at once so precious,

Spent so liberally.

A non-renewable resource,

An expended commodity.

Sign out, sign in.

Where to begin?

Click-bait, substrate.

Mental masturbation.

Bad groove, YouTube,

Communal isolation.

Last breath, PDF,

Buffering download.

Pop-up, viruses,

Streaming episodes.

Binge-watch, top notch,

Page, Group, Live.

Welcome to the Thunderdome.

Just a drone in the hive.

Summertime Rhymes- # 7 “I Dinnae Ask Ta Be Born”

“I Dinnae Ask Ta Be Born”

 

I Dinnae Ask Ta Be Born.

And yet, most people treat me as if I did.

With all due respect,

Nonexistence never hurt me the way existence does.

Summertime Rhymes- # 6: “Pity Party”

Image Link

“Pity Party”

Come and join my pity party.

There’s a seat right next to me.

I’ll share more than you care to know.

It’ll only costs some sympathy.

Can I convince you, that life is tough?

That, misfortune follows me?

For wrong or right, or just for spite,

Fate supports my misery.

If I could list, you’d get the gist,

Of all my maladies.

You could conceive, all that aggrieves,

And keeps me from some peace.

Hop on my train, while I complain,

It’s nice when I can confide.

Your presence here, your open ear,

Helps deny the facts I hide.

It might well be, that I can’t see,

How my choices bring pain to me.

But at this table, you help enable,

A lack of accountability.

When the sky falls, Who’s at fault?

Well, it certainly can’t be me.

For, fate’s designs, keep me behind.

Please, take pity on me.
