THE influencer

thanks you for your attention

because it's monetizable

because money is the only metric

it knows how to measure itself

against other influencers, the competition.


and it despises you

the follower, the subscriber

because you're expendable replaceable;

your time and energy is finite

and therefore its value and meaning

appreciate at an ever accelerating rate

as you age, racing toward

your ultimate demise, death, end.


yet you sell it so low too low;

you value your precious scarce resources

energy and time, so cheaply

and that makes you despicable

pathetic worthy of its derision.
