Instagram sensations singing
Of merch and movie tie-ins,
Of search engine optimization,
Of lab grown meat and food bank cheese.
This is the era in which we find ourselves.
Outbreaks of wisdom become click bait.
Mythic, research-driven, multiplatform
Birds speak in stage whispers,
Tweeting about Twitter,
Translated back into English from Thai.
Well OK so what I’m saying is
In any time of enormous upheaval
There is always a bit of like, Really?
But also kind of not sometimes,
And I’m like, Huh, I’m like Right?
So sign up for your toolkit,
Relax in spa-like comfort,
Get your gorgeous on.
And receive a 12% increase in self-esteem.
A good memory admits you and a guest.
