Modern life, courtesy social media


Boredom is a malady

Contagious, rapidly spreading

As millions of people try to dispel

The loneliness they are dreading..

Cooped up in cubicles at work

For company, there’s Twitter

Facebook, and Instagram, etc.

So that precious time they can fritter

Gloating over achievements of others

While in self-pity they continue to wallow

Eyeing old friends with jealous eyes

Their own lives appear to be hollow

Their jobs are mundane, quite boring

While their friends globetrot and savor

The finer aspects of stylish living

Their lives lack color and flavor.

Meeting friends in person is difficult

Occupied as they are in their worlds myopic

Documenting on social media their lives’ highlights

For others to watch, these biased biopics.

Comparing their profiles to those of their peers

One-upmanship is now an epidemic

To outdo each other in “coolness factor”

This malady has acquired proportions epic!
