New Normal

Choose chivalry in the new millennium Hounded by instant institutions Vying in the main to inhabit any cranium Prone to proclivities prohibiting and inhibiting affections. Inject zeal and steel Into backs bent on the Facebook platform Where puny posts reel In discomfort at the loss of their honesty home. Spin wheels. Don’t reinvent wheels Although pesky posts you tweet Every morning imply insanity spills Into worthy worlds you no longer greet. Cure yourself from the moon That casts a long shadow Into your thoughts and boats at noon When monsoons and typhoons doodle noodles in your mind’s meadow. Instant answers mediated in social media Twist wisps of vanity out of shape As you glean trivia from Wikipedia Expecting to grow wiser up your nape. Take a deep breath As you assess the travesty Artificial intelligence inflicts on the faith You once held in awe and majesty. Worry not if pretence on Whatsapp Stimulates seeds of somnolence Sown in an Internet app That kills slowly your conscience in silence. Infect websites you abhor Blogs you disgust As you adopt a gung-ho Attitude in the dust of August.
