Want to save yourself some trouble?
Wrap yourself inside a bubble.
Bring discussion to an end –
everything’s OK now, friend!
Echo chambers are so fine:
I love to hear ideas like mine,
and hate to hear ideas I… hate.
(Man these lyrics ain’t so great.)
I love the sound of my own voice,
I shun debate, I hate discourse.
“Different views? Gee, I don’t know…
They might offend me… Thanks, but no.”
I click “unfriend”, “unfollow”, “block”,
and then I’m totally in shock
when things outside my own dominion
contradict my own opinion.
“Vaccinating actually helps?
Man evolved from ancient apes?!
Brexit, global warming, TRUMP?!
“I didn’t see THAT coming!” (*thump*)
