Our Social Media Art become our heaven - Shallow concerns and computer games, All opinion and no wisdom, Where mob justice is done, With laughter and mirth At all acts of aggression.
Give us this day Wrong thoughts in our head - Reinforce our prejudices, As we incite force Against those who are prejudiced against us.
Let us revel in our days of social stagflation, The epitome and narcissism of Selfie People. All power to the the chatlines, The hangouts, and photo galleries, Where fake news has dominion, And all truth is transitory For ever and ever - meh !
As with everything else in American life, the national government is just another commodity packaged for mass consumption. We're all being spoon fed a spectacular narrative which by its very nature is designed to evoke the passions.
Every day, someone gets on TV and says or does something which provokes outrage, drawing the viewer in like the iridescent lure of an angler fish, and keeping them hooked just long enough for the hypnotic messages of the corporate sponsors to burrow their way into the collective consciousness between "newscasts."
It is precisely for this reason that these frivolous displays SELL like hotcakes. There's no government going on here. There hasn't been for who knows how long? All that is left is BUSINESS. Raw and unfettered. The United States of America is now nothing more than a 'reality' show, and boy, I tells ya, the revenue stream is OH, SO LUCRATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I live on your social acceptance of me You keep my face buried, my eyes blind and my mind occupied You draw me in, I loose myself, trying to find myself I can't hear the birds chirp, I can't see the sunrise You are always here but yet I'm afraid and I’m alone The happiest people living their "best lives" surrounds me Telling me to see, telling me I need to be apart of it Don't you want to be like me? Live feeds, Status updates Selfies, likes Love me, don't scroll without a comment Live streams, fake news, fake friends Program-me, I need your feeds It's not just a movie, it's real life get a clue
they covered. they checked. they thought they were doomed. so they pulled the trigger and 'boom, boom, boom.' their names stretched across. the series of stories shook the world. their stories were true, they said. happy they were when people bought their books. happy they were to lie to get the loot. happy they were to get communities and hearts broken. happy they were to break the banks of hearts. to get the money. it isn't that hard. for them to do what they do. fake news.
