Sheep on Social Media (Originally Untitled) – Written December 2016 (Aged 41)

Sheep on Social Media

people share these posts –
without a second thought
ad when it comes to these posts
who cares about the host?
everything on social media –
well it must be true
with its framed black border
and grey font hue
they shout out, i will share it!
who cares about the facts!
if life has been lives so carelessly
no wonder you have been had
sheep to pens,
from social media to social media
and then back again
thinking for yourself,
well, that requires money on the meter
you can rob peter to pay paul
but you still owe a debt to peter
it’s careless thinking to show care
it is sheep on social media

James Garratt – December 2016
