internet safety

Oct 18, 2022

I never get off the Internet, but sometimes I hate the Internet. And sometimes I write poems to whine about it, and sometimes I share those poems to social media.

I know. The irony is not lost on me.

But I’m tired, y’all. I’m tired of seeing people be so unnecessarily cruel to one another. I’m tired of being reduced to an algorithm. I’m tired of social media companies and the metaverse or whatever Mark Zuckerberg is plotting next.

And since this is all on social media, I guess you can ✨ironically✨ share/like/leave me a tip on my Buy Me a Coffee page. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 🤑 💻

internet safety

stay safe, they told me.

beware of spam and predators

don’t stay too long

don’t share too much.

now, we share everything.

no one told me 

my life would become a product.

every thought and photo 

tailored for an audience, 

perfected by an algorithm

to become shiny and marketable

likable retweetable sharable rebloggable memeable consumable

able to be ripped apart 

until there is nothing left to give.

Enjoy this post?
