Video Games, Reality Shows, Social Media Poem by soren Barrett

Video Games, Reality Shows, Social Media

Rating: 5.0


A society of voyeurs
Pretend warriors
Living through another persons life
with the safety of a proxy
Having no moxie
To face the world's strife
In illusions they live
With little to give
A life without meaning
They would rather watch a show
Than to know
Such fantasy is demeaning

Soren, you have succinctly, and so perfectly, assessed a generation (or two) of robotic beings. Escaping reality in their own fantasy world.Devoid of responsibility to find their life's passion. Congratulations on a very well deserved POD!

So true i know people that spend all their free time playing video games. I dont judge but that is a waste of time. Video games, social media so much time wasted on garbage
