Social media

Like rat poison, brightly coloured and sweetly flavoured to entrap and entice,

Messages come to our phones, in the colours of Public Service and flavour of Sincere Advice

Stripped of the pious words and honourable names, the messages are just plain old Slander and Gossip,

As poisonous as it always had been, but now spreading  faster and wider from fingertip to fingertip!

Eating the dead flesh of a brother or sister had just become a sought after meal,

And Social Media is the restaurant serving it to us braaied, fryed,  boiled or cooked with zeal!
