After all the love
the fear and hate
the final condemnation
religious exhortation
separation, division
inspiration and defamation 
the truth the lies
and conspiratorial denials
the didn’t know but should know
the informational overload
a terror strike
who was right
false flag war in another nation

Recipes for disaster
and human annihilation
the falling price
the rising cost
stories of the children in hopeless lost
burning questions of who’s at fault
scientific twaddle
and revelation
the stars, the moon
raising populous of depopulation
agenda and mind bender
cognitive dissonance
dissonant response
begging responsibility 

The billion faces
of you and me
in political chaos
and social agony
flying communications of anarchy
upon despot papers in printed secret societies
viral themes
shocking schemes
of never really happenings
buried expose of more important things
scratching the itch of human
the echo of ages
filed upon the grail of deception

The poor, the rich
the space between
the dark age of the human soul
and its ending
so far into the madness
we’re all participating
and behind it all this everlasting scream
clings with talons of steal
wrapped around the idiocy of money

And then
the pages stopped
love, laugh, angry
all the controversy
profiles disappeared to digital ash
the wealth of humanity
signing off
and closed the account

And there alone in electronic ether
all the voices ricochet into it didn’t matter 
the last person on face book
sent one final emoji smile
