In Facebook there are meme-pictures
under the group: “Group-power
opposed against the government.“
At the group, people mostly comment
saying how they hate such-and-such.
How vile and terrible it is.
And then there are likes.
And silence. No protests,
no organizing, no plans,
no riots, not even speech of
‘I opposed the goverment today’.
I am confused by this group-power.
While I am dazzled by it’s magic: How we can find
so much satisfaction in just speaking
and looking at shit happening. As shit.
Afraid, scared, full of hate. While waiting
for someone or something to happen.
Waiting for the king or queen or knight to ride
onwards. Jeanne D’Arc to release us.
God to save us. For Facebook to be more
real than reality is.
In reality, my cynicism suffocates me. I am poison
flung at your face. While you deserve my hand.
But we have only yours.
I'm trying to get people to tell me stories again; tell me a story.
