Headlines Diminish Us Sonnet

“[The New York Daily News Published this mess
To Make Distracted Parents Feel Less Fake;
Southern] Boy Handcuffed & Beaten to Death
Over [A] Missing piece of Birthday Cake”

All of us internet data points can
Feel arrogant superiority
Because we behaved better than this man
Who acted out inferiority

So we haven’t cooked our children’s dinners,
Lunches or breakfasts for a few hot weeks
We can look down at others as sinners
& feel our TV lives are just too sweet

The internet has lowered the bar so
That we can excuse our mediocre flow
