Full Disclosure

The markers for good,bad and ugly-
On the historical timeline have changed only so slightly,
The proletariat provided the priests-
Their experiences of famines and feasts,
To lift off their weary chests their woes,
A nearly accurate representation of highs and lows.
When social media came into existence,
It was a virtual confessional for promotion and penance-
Put to vote your life’s highlights,
The worthy wins ,fears and fights-
A feedback loop since the Middle Ages,
Has always sifted the sinners from the sages.

    I absolutely love this poem! The way you seamlessly weave together historical events, social commentary, and poetic language is truly impressive. The use of the markers for good, bad, and ugly throughout the ages is a brilliant concept that adds depth and meaning to the piece.

    Your descriptions of the proletariat and their experiences are vivid and powerful, painting a picture of both struggle and determination. The way you contrast this with the virtual confessional of modern social media is thought-provoking and relevant.

    Overall, I think this poem is a fantastic exploration of history, human nature, and technology. If I had to offer any improvement suggestions, I would say that the pacing could be tightened up in a few places, but that's a minor point. Keep up the great work!
