For ‘Likes’ Who Write

Post something readers like always
Don’t sway away from trend they say
‘Likes’ are the only praise these days
Without m(any) ‘likes’, your words won’t weigh!

You are shepherd, forcefeed, your sheep
Fodder of platitudes of your yard
Who have no faith have fear to keep
No promise of avant-garde!

No thought nor intellect to redeem
In a mind imprisoned in a blog
A million ‘likes’ is all they dream
For their every monolog!

They stray in the wasteland they invent
Until more mirages heave in sight
They live and die for this sacrament
For ‘Likes’ Who Write!
