Is this Social?
by H. Tsory
They want your image they want your soul as much as you can give they’ll take it all
They want information they want consent monetizing us down to the last cent
Like we’re just products lined up on a shelf a piece of meat cut and paste yourself
Inside out we’ve been swallowed whole identities merging we’re getting sold
Feeding the machines replacing skin with glass we’re raising imitations Is this social?
How many friends can you pretend to have and what’s your status Is this social?
Reject their probing eyes their sucking needle lies keep some of it inside
They’re tracking tendencies averaging us out if we could disappear we’d find a way out
Consuming the consumers the pitchman is fake
he swallows his own tail he is a walking snake
Eyes stapled to a screen their minds all gone do you want that just another Replicon
Manufacturing a sense of belonging but we don’t need them to tell us who we are
