A world led astray, faces glued to screens all day,
Where are we going? Is this the right way?
Caught up in endless netflix sessions,
Scrolling and liking, feeding our social media obsessions,
Buried in newsfeeds and pictures of the food we eat,
What a strange set of affairs indeed.
Losing touch with the world around us, with the people that surround us,
Giving much of our attention to things stranger than fiction,
Living in a world that ever increases to lack conviction,
I struggle to find words to describe my feelings of friction,
– in this oh, so strange world of fiction.
