Narcissist

From my electric platform

The world’s attention rapt

My calling thus to perform

On keys my glad hands clapped

The glowing screen keeps me warm

Socially handicapped

Isolation as the new norm

In my little world I’m trapped

Online I can be a giant

A little girl or little boy

An iconoclast defiant

As God create and then destroy

A cowed weakling compliant

Taking the beatings to enjoy

Role as hooker or as client

All the personas I employ

Kneel before the narcissist

Reflect upon the lips unkissed

Ordinary specialist

In two dimensions I exist

Grovel to the narcissist

Pixels imperfect I consist

Ergo egos owe egotist

On such attentions I subsist

Confuse virtual with virtue

A life with online

Unable to assert to

The ether thus consign

Extroverted introverts who

Exist without sunshine

Such fantasies must hurt true

Depopulation by design

Kneel before the narcissist

Reflect upon the lips unkissed

Ordinary specialist

In two dimensions I exist

Grovel to the narcissist

Pixels imperfect I consist

Ergo egos owe egotist

On such attentions I subsist
