facebook hymn

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

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.

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