Facebook Fertilizer

I read this blog post and was inspired to write.  Don’t worry…none of my Facebook friends know I’m here.

I sound
Like an old fogey
But I remember when
Facebook was not a storehouse for
Manure

It was
A place to keep
Connected to old friends
Scattered by time to places far
Away

And now…
Mindless trolls,
Mindless memes, mindless games
A cacophony that makes us
Zombies

My thoughts,
Heartfelt feelings
Opinions of the world
Irrelevant because they don’t
Insult

I’m lost
In the white noise
Only life’s big events
Catches the attention of my
Old friends

Discord
Is being sown
By foul infotainment
Fertilized by Facebook’s surplus of
Manure
