Millennial Fatalists March 12, 2015

Posted by vsap in Blogroll, Poetry.

Millennial fatalists void of hope, lack of vision and no faith,
and they believe they must live in the moment, forever.
They are infectious in a viral Snapchat, Instagram way.
No intention of making things last, just post it because you can.

Hit and run – the worst kind of drive-by media, gawkers.
Reveling in their disdain of society, humans, and their friends,
nothing ever good enough, nothing of substance and truth
when – all the time – they shun quality, thoughtfulness and justice.

Stopping only to collapse into their soap opera lives,
caricatures of themselves and the banal lives they are leading.
They are a generation in search of a Montessori school bubble
where everyone is right and all thought is unimpeachable.

At the end of the day, it’s night, and it must have a hashtag
because you can’t possibly be real without a feed or blog
for what is life if you aren’t trending?
Glaring at you blankly, they light a cigarette and blow the smoke in your face.
