Internet: Twitter 2

Feb 29 2020

Lord, you were in the business of followers:
Follow me, you said.
And so many did: thousands,
tens of thousands,
followed you around from place to place,
even beat you to the spot so they’d be ready
when you arrived.

But, alas, they all unfollowed you.

Even your core audience abandoned the thread during your crisis,
leaving you with only one lurker, to whom you sent a direct message,
behold, your mother (even your mother followed you).

But the unfollowers:
they wanted something else of you
they wanted the tweet;
you offered the universe.
