Emoticons, by Oonah V Joslin

Such emo-sentiments are hollow, I find,
boast, public outcries of the Face book kind.
..
I feel it’s like some bargain with the devil
a thing so vain it rivals our survival.
..
Sign the petition. Share. Follow the daily mail.
Powerlessness assuaged, you can sleep well.
..
The sting is Armageddon if you fail.
This ship of fools is already under sail.
..
The latest fad, the latest fire, the latest trouble.
Shut the computer down. Make mine a double.
