Backwards we go, back to the age of the stone,

Facebook warring tribes, just Kool-Aid drones.


 

Pack mentality leaves warriors feeling bold,

Safety in numbers and aggression takes hold.


 

Hang with like-minded, shun those who disagree,

No right to think different than my friends or me


 

Compromise is surrender, my way or none,

On the electronic battlefield, give 'em the gun.


 

Comments the new cave painting on the wall

We're completely unaware as our society falls


 

Self-destruction every time we press 'send,'

Anti-social media amplifies words we have penned


 

Freedom of expression has made prisoners of society,

We're just keyboard kings in the Land Of The Free.
