Open eyes only to close them
first thing is first
dull our minds
wait in line voluntarily
to be lulled back to sleep

social media is
the wake up call
rise and shine to kiss
the corporal goodbye

aimless, arrogant zombies
click “like” on everything
share our “stories”
share our incessant whining
care about nothing

over time we have a tale,
a narrative, a whole spiel
of just that – nothing
adrift in a tangled, torturous web
a counterfeit life digitized
