Poem: Social Media Hypocrisy


I have a thousand friends, but I am anti-social.

I am filthy rich, but I am poor.

I am ripped, but I am sagging.

I laugh out loud with a straight face.

I ‘like’ what I hate.

I boast that I’m humble.

I am the author of a fake reality TV show.

I speak profoundly regarding topics about which I have no knowledge.

I support and share what the mass shares.

I have no voice as I am merely a wall echoing the voice of society.

I have become so liberal that nothing is wrong.

I sell myself, for the ‘likes’ of the people.

I have become nothing, my life, is a lie.
