The World. According To...

The World. According to...
Gossipers whispering fresh rumors to spread.
With a sprinkling of innuendos.
The kind that dance in vacant heads.

The World. According to...
Minds available to consume,
Visions of fleeting fame.

The World. According to...
Those anonymous in chatrooms.
Using faked names.
Hoping to befriend.
Anyone to entice.
Before bullying them again and again.
To then pretend an innocence to defend.

The World. According to...
The mindless unwinding.
From sanities diseased.
And depending who they are,
Become sympathized for childhoods...
By the 'experts' degreed in psychology.

The World. According to...
Dementing intentions.
Winning in increasing popularity.

The World. According to...
An infusing of delusions.
And a marketing of dangerous criminal games.
Played on a daily basis.
And solicited as a benefit,
To the ones addicted.
Seeking a fix to remain deranged.

The World.
According to...
The few that are left.
Viewed gasping for breath in disbelief.
