I'm auditioning for an electronic tightrope-walking job,

desperately trying not to join the dreaded mob

 

at Partisan Hall, screaming personal outrage against the other side,

'they are completely wrong--they're all evil and lie!'

 

Even though personally, to me, the truth is so obvious,

that's no reason to get personal, and become oblivious

 

to the fact you're talking to a real person, not a machine,

that you can't use the computer to hide behind, and be

 

rude and obnoxious from however many miles away,

thinking you're safe--electronic road rage, one might say.
