The Great Black and White Shark

The black and white of the page
of the tweet
Transforms
to the black and white of the argument
No room
to roam
the grey areas
No agreeing to disagree

Subtext
Subtweet
Passive aggressively
The Great Black and White Shark
Can smell an ill conceived opinion
From 280 characters away
The move left to right
with followers to fright

The gatekeepers
The saviours
The school yard bullies
Standing for the righteous and free
Blind to hypocrisy
