Hello computer, my old friend –
I’ve come to waste time with you again.
Because I sat to check out just one thing.
Now its two, and I should be sleeping.
But the vision that was planted in my head
Is the latest thing the meme artists said.
And the sound of scrolling.
So many pictures of the babies sweet,
And of relationships, before they cheat.
All the quizzes that people want their friends to take,
So we can compare results for heaven’s sake.
If you love God, then say this prayer,
And copy all your friends or else beware.
I hear the sound of scrolling.
Yet another story to make me cry
And lots more products that I need to buy.
I listen to a small angel voice sing,
And skim a recipe for chicken wings.
I give that awful post a “frown”
Then finally I shut it down.
And now, no sound of scrolling.
