Day 156. Wednesday 19th September 2018

What If

© 2018 Steve Cook

What if Facebook and Twitter

Were merely traps

And time spent on them

Was of little value

Except to some elite

Who prefer us off the streets

Stuck in corn-and-games distractions

Where chitchat and natter deceive

With a febrile mimicry of action

Like the twitching limbs of the

Recently deceased,

And "meaningful discussion" provides

An illusion of action

While the world's heroes

Man their keyboards

Instead of the barricades?
