Social Media

Back with another socially impactful commentary, @Raylee22 drops her latest prose on the phenomenon, or in some cases, the destructive illusion known as social media.  Enjoy!

Social Media

 Like this stat
Like this pic
Like this lie
Like this trick…as in scheme, not chic
Keep face for the gram
I’m bout this way
I’m bout that life
15 seconds of what I want them to think it be like
Let me throw this shade
Behind this pic
That I stole from that cousin’s friend’s uncle’s niece’s best friend’s boyfriend’s sister’s sh*t….
Let me do it for the gram
Let me do it for the book
Let me do it for the lurkers
Let me do it for the likes
Let me look on
as I “sip this tea” and
Screenshot to repost
Clearly, not drinking what I claim to be
MCMs, WCWs
His C w/ your M
Your M w/ his W
These hoes ain’t loyal
These bros ain’t either
Subliminal stats like
At the Laundry mat
Hanging sh*t out to dry
Delete that stat,
Delete that pic
Even though, technically, its permanent
Use it as your biography
Getting mad at people’s commentary
Saying “don’t judge me”
But, um, you steady
Typing like it’s your diary????
Post it for the internet fame
Post it for the internet followers
Post it for the internet society
Forgetting that you can’t always hide behind your technology
SMH…Social Media Hell
