Written for the WeWritePoems prompt for ‘congregate’; what do we do as a community? I guess mine is more of an ‘anti-congregate’ view.
More crowded than ever,
this global community
we have created.
Thousand home neighborhoods,
massive malls, super ‘marts’,
So many more people,
so fewer relationships.
Hundreds of online ‘friends’,
never knowing our neighbors name;
superficial acquaintances rule our circles,
much too busy for personal investment.
more events –
So many within arms reach,
Yet we are often alone in a crowd.
