Drama Queens and Suicide Kings Dance Their Dance On The Social Nets

Friday, October 15, 2010
Let me start by saying, I am not immune to drama on the net. Yours or that of my own making. I would like to think I am getting better about it. I can hear those of you whom I either private Plurk or IM scoffing at this. So, maybe I am not getting better.

So, while this is directed at all you Drama Queens and Suicide Kings1, like many things a writer writes,  it is for my edification as well.
The faithful gather before flickering screens
to visit their virtual friends
To click a like
To post a link
To look in on what other people think
The faithful pause and reflect
and for some words will offend
By cutting a little too close
By reading too much into a bit
By believing some of it
The faithful will lock their caps
and register their disdain
To those they know
To those they don't
To not feel so alone
The faithful quietly watch
and try not to get sucked in
1 - The line Drama Queens and Suicide Kings is from a Soul Asylum song called Misery.
