A Brave New World

They said, “It’s now or never.”

The eyes said they weren’t so sure.

They wanted to be so clever…

Their motivations self centered pure.

The phone is the the new mirror.

Likes are the new hot.

Rejection is the new depression.

Communication the new rot.

It’s a brave new world my friends.

I don’t know where I fit.

I’m kinda liking the silence.

And the view from where I sit.
