Prey of the day

The prey these days are trusting souls.
Hunted by those who make them feel complete,
monsters posing as friends, a convenient role.

Searching for prey with a simple scroll,
finding feasts without ever planting their feet.
The prey these days are trusting souls.

Every item shared has a simple goal,
making it seem as they should meet.
Monsters posing as friends, a convenient role.

This hidden world with little control,
creates relationships soft, not concrete.
The prey these days are trusting souls.

One day the hunter will convince their prey to take a stroll.
They pretend to be friendly and meek,
monsters posing as friends, a convenient role.

The information provided to this black hole,
may look like a fact but really it is a deceit.
The prey these days are trusting souls,
monsters posing as friends, a convenient role.
