31 Days of Poetry - Day 25 - INSTAGRAM GENERATION - by Vic'Adex

(... HIS POEM ...)

Dear Instagram generation 
Facebook neighbors from countless nations
Whose who speak in the voice of a twitting bird, 
Come and riddle me this

Sing me a freedom song
Composed without the bass lines
Of sacrificed blood

Find me a free lunch
Without the secret seasonings
Of hidden agendas

Bring me a first fruit harvest 
Without the fertilization 
Of diligent bloody sweats 

Show me showers of joy
Culminated without the dark stormy clouds 
Of agonizing defiance 

Show me an ancient mountain with shallow roots 
If you can
Or an Everlasting iceberg floating carelessly
Along glacier fault lines. 

Let us not be outdone by
Those who occupied Washington 
Without the luxury of a hashtag 

Let us not be outlived by
Memories of faceless feats
Who didn't discover the selfie

Let not our stories 
Be buried in clouds of bloggers' mess
Outdone by tales which do not don newspaper clips

For there were who had less
But did more
Those with no eyes
But saw more 

Let not our greatest references 
Remain the plumb lines and ancient ruins
Of prehistoric accomplishments 

Selah
