Online negativity

It's instant and damning, the lair of the fool,
They're waiting to pounce, the talent-light tools
From out of the ether comes the new Shecky Green's
Anonymous stand-ups spew hatred, nasty and mean
It's not far from funny to dick, from clever to prick
It's easy to see what they're thinking, what makes them tick
Frustrated would-be comedians hurl insults and proof
that they are angry, and nothing if not unhappy goofs
Ignore-ability and thick artist skin is a for-sure necessary
to bear the crushing weight of nasty the artist must carry
Discretion don't go there is called for, but these zeros went
When think again is on the menu, it's already been sent
Loud and proud boys revel in their ode to "you suck!"
If you thought you'd be missing them, no such luck
Forget it, they're out there, those nasty nastiness trolls,
so be prepared to be ridiculed and raked over the coals!

Well I've been there and worn the T-shirt until it's full of holes, don't know where you post , I assume FB or the likes, it's playground for the bored, the narcissists and the likes , one has to be careful not to become one of them , a little bit at a time is what I advise just so you can snigger up your sleeve at them taking a hissy fit thinking you don't know what they are up to , some folks would sell Thier own granny for cripes sakes ..
I like the way you wrote this , nice work !!!

Thank, SB, and too many take anything they see on social media as the awful truth

Are you calling me stupid, Tom? No, thank you much, and I don't take it seriously, it's others who do that makes me sick
