Microsoft be doing me dirty

Facebook got me feeling FOMO

Instagram has me sketchy of the DM’s

Now Mark wants a Metaverse

What in the world is techno

Doing to the minds of the young?

Unable to put down devices

Checking TikTok

Ignoring the clock, the countdown

Of all things pertinent

Relevance juxtaposing

The actual from the supposing

People in charge just as much in the game

Ignoring same behavior

Because they don’t know

WhenWhyHow to stop

Future at stake

For God’s sake

The digital divide is among us

Dividing us from the real

The time to

Participate in life
