(un)social media

they are so
caught up
in being righteous
they act as dictators
telling us
what to like
to feel
who to befriend
it is a mob mentality
no longer sated
with moving on
or ignoring
that which we
disagree with

public shaming
personal attacks
not seeing the line
between them
and that they hold
so hated
is slowly becoming
the same

we can disagree
fundamentally
yet coexist
peacefully

save your outrage
your bubbling toxicity
for quiet reflection
this constant imbibing
of what destroys
in an effort
to kill
that which you despise
only hurts you
in the long run

running headlong
down a greased slope
of self harm and hate
