Internet duality

The greatest research tool we’ve ever had

That we know as the Internet

Corrupted and used for things like **** 

By paedophiles, terrorists and more.

Used by criminals to hack and steal from you

People trying to fool you

False profiles and false names 

On the Web no one knows no shame.

Sad to think  that what could have been the greatest of inventions would submit

To becoming just a place for people to play games like candy crush

Hunting Pokemons all day.

As a social coming together it worked

But is populated by many jerks

Who want to troll and bully folk

Hiding behind their keyboards they evoke

Misery on their prey.

In their anonymity the play these games

Negative use of a wonderful thing

The Internet allows this in.

But it also helps those who want to makes changes

To this world through petition exchanges

Helps to garner up support

Open peoples minds up to all

the injustices and oppression in this world

Allows us to March under banners unfurled.

Using masks we can create a change

To government policies in the name

Of Anonymous and social justice claims

We can make a difference each day.

So maybe there is still something good to it

Like duality there are two sides of it

But the good side is good and filled with light

But the dark Web is blacker than the darkest nights

It lures people in so please be aware

Keep your wits about you and just be of care

That evil lurks within this thing

And can corrupt your soul it’s unforgiving.

The Internet is a universal space

Can leave you tormented or full of grace.
