Digital Crusader

Outrage-by-proxy.
Decry unfairness in solidarity.
A pixelated sledgehammer to the
institutions which wrong us.

Share and retweet; echo in your chamber
to reiterate that which we already
believe to be true.
The computer chair demonstrator,
contributing nothing of consequence.

Would you even care whether you
made a difference?
Or are you simply patting yourself on the
back for brushing against the grain?

Careful; too much grit will cut open your
palms and stain your hands the same color of red.
It’s fashionable to question, only to
plug your ears
from the answer.
