Blurt on the Wobbly Web

bylegerdemer©

Author's note: While this poem was inspired by a conversation with another writer, it is in no way directed at him.


I like to think the best of folk,
occasionally the worst.
Sometimes I put my foot in it,
adding my two cents' worth.

The internet's a foggy mirror
that's smeared with Vaseline,
reflecting our own defeats
clothed in false modesty.

It rarely lifts its veil for us,
this hydra of distrust.
Tempts us to flirt, sometimes to sin,
then treats us with disgust.
