The war of the comments section

The outraged keyboard warriors roar

and I respond, always in lower case.

I try for calm but my heart rate soars.

Why can’t they see the truth?

Must they believe in News Corp?

(I understand the irony here.)

The multitudes of fools are easier to ignore.

It’s the misguided, reasonable ones

who conscript me into this war

against my better judgement.

There is nobody keeping score.

Half the soldiers are pretending.

What am I even fighting for?

A hope of bringing someone over,

recruiting a mind hungry for more,

but none of us will ever defect.

The battle lines are already drawn.

One side’s good and one is evil

and the only thing we know for sure

is our team is always right.
