The apocalypse is not nigh,
it is here;
open your eyes
and look into fear.
The end is not coming
it has arrived;
double check your phone
and try to survive.
The world is barren
and the network is dust
but by all means,
post a selfie if you must.

One thought on “#tbt

  1. Care not to vilify the act of ordinary escapism. Our kin is powerless in many fronts, and the act of distraction is found on a plethora of activities, from self-glorification in social platforms, or the simple act of producing poetry, the form differs but the objective is equal.
    The world might be ending, or it might not, but certainty is a luxury we are not afforded. Never forget.
