Digital Earth

The supreme struggle for relevance
Thrives in digital earth
The obsession with false knowledge
Breeds the best of all the worst
The kingdom of the bully, the corral of the accursed
If pettiness is a diety, social media is its church
Congregation full of misrepresentation
From the safety of a keyboard, people quick to forget their station
Whatever pain or wicked thing
Whatever lust or gripe
Is hastily commented on with a few clicks and some type
With words as ammunition you make their trigger finger itch and so
At night, they troll your time line trying to figure out your clique
Trying to post that thousandth selfie to convince you of their worth
But because you are well watered, you don't suffer from their thirst
The supreme struggle for relevance
Thrives in digital realms
The obsession with false knowledge
Might cause one to be overwhelmed
The truth is, what is relevant will remain to be what is true
What is of importance is treating others as you want them to treat you
