Social Media Blues
by Michael Doyle

It's really kind of funny
About this social media scene
It really kind of bugs me
How all these geniuses want to vent their spleen

Weren't these guys the same ones
Who sat in back, claiming they were street smart
Admiring oil slicks and cheerleader's buns
And whose best bets were either music or art?

But not it seems they've got something to say
About just about everything under the sun
It's amazing how their expertise changes in a thousand ways
And how their self-confidence endlessly runs

Maybe sometimes it is best to keep in mind
We're born with two ears and one mouth
And that facts change, while we're always blind
If we only listen to fools, things are bound to go south

Certainly, there is a lot to be seen and heard
Or learned about from a thousand sources
But it is as though to these Einsteins it hasn't occurred
That we watched them flunk in even the most basic courses
