PAD Challenge Day 7: Internet Trolls
PAD Challenge Day 7: Write a villain poem.
Supervillains from Marvel,
Detective Comics and Disney
have lifelines on the World Wide Web
and Apps with no capes.
Monitors, tablets, and mobile
screens are their sweet escape;
equal opportunity under
anonymous accounts and pseudo names.
They follow, friend you
knowingly knowing they are
vicious, vindictive, broken foes
with minimum or no genuine
human interaction to expose.
Instead, seeking validation
and salvation in the land of Wi-Fi
with psychological sadism as their high.
All day scrolling and scrolling,
they stay trolling and trolling
trying to control narratives
like they for real for real
know you like they know you know you;
when they are just squares under squares
with wicked hearts fueling offensive wars
going nowhere, wasting time;
causing inflammation to bodies and souls;
Injecting anxiety, pain, self-doubt,
and inadequacy into minds;
Awaking childhood and adulthood traumas;
Teasing, bullying, exploiting, and harassing
as if they are not part of the human race.
They fail to acknowledge the truth.
They fear the evidence behind the FACTS.
Carelessly output venom like Venom.
Let evil go viral with their Cruella de Vil attacks.
Impersonating Joker as if this bullshit is something to LOL at.
Until someone fire or clap back like “homie don’t play that”.
