I don’t respond to your post
Your hopes, dreams, your fears
I could care
I respond to your other responders
To influence
Their hopes, dreams, their fears

Your forum, big or small, is my
main stage, and I’m willing to wager
You’ve never factor the performative nature
Of my cunning attempt at culling your concerns
And swaying your readers to reject reason, facts,
And that, oh so- hoped for forum,
of a good faith exchange of ideas

That ain’t me
And more important
It ain’t about you
You’ve got the platform
And a crew

But I practice the
performative view

Performative politics has always been around
But the internet has truly grounded it, and it really
sparked these past few weeks. In fact it’s charging.
Be aware.
