Clacks and Flashes and Chings

 
All the clacks and flashes and chings,
culture becomes a twittering machine,
lost in distracting cravings from electronic crack,
it’s shattered attention flung everywhere - 
stroboscopic Soma.

Myths are changed
while consensus reality
is distorted;
three dimensions are reduced
to momentary haze;

anger misplaced,
counterfeit pleasure,
sentimentality trumps reason,
truth is played like three card monte,
and consequences are yet
to be tallied.

This is another engraving
on the Bastards’ win list.
