Masterpieces of Mediocrity
What happens when everyone transmits, leaving nobody to receive?
Impossible to attain that elusive zone of substance, in between ta’arof and bullshit
How did we go from a debate over authenticity
To a culture clash over technology?
From setting straight mis-summaries
To sucking up debate’s oxygen
With talk of safe spaces, shimmering vistas of offense, personal hurt
Trauma, therapy, respect, patriarchy
Palpitating lakes of loss, resentment, misdirection
Oh for a drought!
