Which


Poesy plus Polemics

the thing about the internet
it’s all bullshit
and everyone knows it
even while using it
as primary source of
most information

when I was a kid
we learned our lies honestly
never questioned the truth
of what it said in the texts
we wrapped up in
our neat homemade
brown paper bookcovers
never had to worry
if teacher’s lessons
were mere errant dogma
in deliberate disguise

back then
we believed everyone
today we believe no one
I wonder which era
inflicted the bigger
intellectual handicap
