Unsocial Media

By: Ben Weigel

Headphones cradling my ears

I enter a world

Where electronic pictures and sounds

Are ever present

I take a seat

At the Twitter home page

Where people project themselves to me

Competing for my attention

I don’t want to be left out

So I’ll type my 140 characters or less

Copying, the time I have on this earth

Pasting it to a virtual wall

Dragging what I have left

Dropping it in the trash
