Everyone active on Social Media
Is interested in the other’s take
On the daily dose of forwards
Half of which turn out to be fake!
Those who simply sit and forward
Think they are being most kind
In helping to entertain their friends
Without applying their own mind
In interminable days of lockdown
Those who ran from pillar to post
Are now glued to their cellphones
Counting who has forwarded most
This monotony is broken with news
That some celebrity is about to die
While speculations on cause peak
A tweet surfaces that it’s all a lie!
If you thought for incredible stuff
It’s tough to find any takers
Remember you are living in a land
Governed by an assortment of fakers!
Statisticians manipulating figures
News anchors with finger in every pie
Liars, like locusts, swarm all around us
Following the Prime Master of Blatant Lie!
