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.
