Time To Leave

Not that anyone will care
It’s time to leave this realm of
likes and loves and cartoon emotions
and the sickness that ensues from
waiting on a roller coaster ride
for the dopamine hit at the height of
where it reaches that insanely high peak
Insanity
A Play
Fake
Gamble
Negative engagement
Breeding more
Negative engagement
for a third party’s,
(hidden in the shadows),
profit
Shysters
Snake oil
Salesmen
Online universities
Illusions
Delusions
of grandeur
I
Me
My
Mine
Money
Pavlov’s poor little doggy
Shocks and treats
and more
and more
and more
shocks without treats
the treats are tweets
Silent bells and whistles
and guaranteed manipulation
“Sad”
the new salutation from a
President
who’s high as a kite
on his tweets
Nobody ever really meets
Where’s love hiding
Somewhere in the shadows with the profit makers?
It’s time to leave.
