“Social” media


Let me riddle you a conundrum

hum a rhyme down your eardrum

and wait while your cochlea confides

my puzzle to your mental insides.


Ready? Harken close my dear,

and answer me what you now hear:

Why are you so terribly alone

with half a thousand friends on your phone?


What loud void do you hear in the silence

when batteries die and thoughts will not rest?

How is it that we are so intertwined

yet our souls ever feel confined?


Please, if an answer you have

let me know.

For I have walked this digital realm

too long to let go.
