I Seek Confirmation


I seek confirmation

On my opinions I proclaim

I use social media

A proclamation of this self-indulgent fame

I find myself captured

In the divisive political realm

The arena of gladiatorial rhetoric

Will often take the helm

Speak to the hive mind

Cower to the mob rule

Will they forsake, will they join?

Will they ridicule?

We can’t change the discourse

We can’t change a rational mind

We can only beseech the guileless

For surely an allegiance we will find

I choose to post a meme

I find it easier to convey

The lowest form of humor

I relegate my sarcastic resume
