Users Who Spiked
at damn near the speed of light.
That’s how fast
You can make an ass of yourself
on the world stage
while strangers jeer
Or, you can use your powers
and build something real;
a palace of pixels.
Because make no mistake—
that shit’s permanent.
Your tweets may as well be etched in marble.
Will your kids see it?
Would you want them to?
You may as well stand by your words,
because like it or not, that’s going to be our legacy.
Words can hurt, or blind, or motivate
in the blink of an eye.
By the thousands.
Maybe they should teach that in school (do they?).
How to be a good person, digitally.
How to keep you eyes and voice on the truth.
And to not use the same password for everything.
