2018 Sonnet 51

Antisocial media enables
The best of friends to show their darker sides.
We show the world that we deserve our labels,
Displaying what a wiser person hides.

Antisocial media permits us
To wear our worst opinions on our sleeves.
Then we try to shine the shoe that fits us,
We boast until our better angel grieves.

Antisocial media empowers
Fools like me to brag and strut and show
I don’t stop to count the bricks for towers
Before I start to make the structure grow.

Antisocial media revealing
Ugliness we’re better off concealing.
