Unsubscribed

Hear ye, hear ye!
Immediately
and unconditionally
unsubscribe me…

from angry, angled punditry
whose words wind up society,
belittling blood with bigotry
and parting parties carelessly;

from boastful posts of puffery,
augmenting unreality
with hyperreal ‘shop imagery
and phoned-in, phony luxury;

from lazy acts of look-at-me,
obligatory charity,
whose macro videography
turns humble to hyperbole;

from satire lacking comedy
while touting more toxicity,
presenting alt-view history
and hawking products for a fee;

from cyclers of conspiracy,
who profit off verbosity
and brand all those who disagree
as either spineless or Nazi;

and zealots claiming piety,
wrapped up in ideology,
who treat opponents awfully,
bypassing spiritually.

I’m wary of authority
that claims to shield morality
and tunnel vision certainty
that burns each epoch’s effigy.

This sea of false equiv’lency
is not the swimming hole for me.
If there’s a racket publicly
just leave me out and set me free.
