Wired fatigue is a real thing
And apathy is what it brings
An ennui that’s typed and tweeted
Your hope for hope becomes defeated
There’s too much this and too much that
Knee jerk outrage we’ve got down pat
Yet woe to those that stay to fight
Defend beliefs is gotdam right!
To those that wield it like a sword
High blood pressure is just reward
But who am I to check and judge?
I’m Queen of calling out a grudge
Aware I am, I’m quite addicted
That fight online? Admit I picked it
But I can’t help but jump right in
Give my two cents, my “unique” spin
A back and forth of topmost tedium
Is maximum of social medium
Is all I get, and that’s not much
But if I stop? I’m out of touch!
A vicious circle without end
Fire shots by pushing “send”
When will I reach my insult limit?
Just walk away from streaming dimwits?
This state of airs is here to stay
And learn I must, to find a way
To live a life of means and balance
Communicate without that malice
A sound and healthy mind I’ll keep
If lucidity sings me to sleep…
