Social Media is Your Lifeline

Is it not enough
to work oneself to death
slaving away for necessities
desired, but not necessarily needed?

All those things you believe in,
flickering television screen
a click away on your keyboard
another needless item to hoard

E bay Queen, Amazon jungle
can I get everything
in some discounted bundle
watching humanity slip away

Need more of the same
money down the drain
buy it on credit, pathetic whore
label junkie, consumer flunkies

Social media
is your lifeline
another selfie,
do you ever leave the bathroom?

Social skills are nonexistent
vapid, vacuous, little nothing
but in that head,you're something
star of your own delusional show...
