facebook hymn

1
facebook made us monitors
of each other and ourselves;
they watch us, we watch us,
town square full of spies,
voyeurs, carnies, maggots.

2
this is what he always wanted,
to be watched, to feel unalone.
it’s the protection of god
watching omnipresent
around the clock surveillance
assuring him he’s not adrift.

3
oh great connective tissue
we praise you, feed us.
watchers, callers, wailers,
pay attention to yourselves
and be paid attention.
