Advocates Of Social Media

Lawrence S. Pertillar 1947 (Connecticut)

Listen up.
All of you who desire,
To live your lives...
As mentally abused fools and idiots.
Devoted advocates of social media.
And too drugged and addicted,
For a quick fix to stay dim witted.
Know this...
There are not that many,
Attempting to stop your wish.
With a doing to be accused and blamed,
Of trying to prevent your mental illness.
Not these...
Come as you are days.
More idiots and fools,
Have their followers too!

And for the record,
I want it now today to be known...
If you continue to stay thoughtless,
With a wasting of your mind...
Money and time?
I have left behind...
My email address easy to find,
On the internet.
Along with direct and simple instructions.
As to where to send,
Funding to assist...
My appalling and obnoxious comments.
Delivered and sent to you.
With my personal autograph,
At your expense.

Aren't you too,
An advocate of social media?
Aren't your despicable comments,
More hypocritical than not?'

That depends!

'On what?'

How money I am sent,
To prove to you with evidence...
How disgusting,
All this mind dimming nonsense is.

And besides,
If I did not support your ignorance...
You would believe me to be,
And I am not only a patriot.
I am also a defender of capitalism!
