Suicidal Idolism

Media, once social,
Now is nothing if not tribal

‘Followers’ another word
For a herd of blind disciples

Hanging off the every word
Of the wealthy and entitled

Popularity the faith
Of the braindead and the idle

Hashtags become commandments
By which judgement shall by passed

With scripture shared so thoughtlessly
By zealots unabashed

Worshipping false gods
Of a modern-day religion

That they’ll follow to a point
Of suicidal idolism
