The Futile Wheel

The Futile Wheel

A Poem by Ripped Denim 💜

Recited for recipients of the Medal for Distinguished Valor in Internet Arguments.

drowning in sodden noise
of apes smashing their toys

big faces' practiced words
heaving gruel for mad herds

rested in comfy chairs
poison fumes from lairs

an essay to a void
counting ways how annoyed

eyes truth-sheened, without sin
bags of labels again

a typical edit
nothing is new: "reddit!..."

all the Experts weigh in
this rant will surely win

Bible verse gives excuse
for rabid hate let loose

enters a leftward take
still a shrill, monstrous rake

which color is the best
to paint this putrid mess?

this sad, bitter riot
between mere this and that

wheels of viral echoes
crashing with hot bellows

keen they must be winning
yet vomit from spinning

hapless witnesses sigh
at frenzied battle-cry

foaming fires emote
"my gold for an up-vote!"

wielding partisan pike
"my kingdom for a like!"
