Information Overload

Information overload
My personal blue screen of death
I'm suffering from knowledgitis
Addicted to trivia as if it's crystal meth

My hands are shaking daily
As I'm trudging round the internet
Because I've found some new conspiracy
Not because of the porn on thehun.net

I know shit about stuff
And stuff about shit
And if I don't share this latest meme
I'll be ridiculed by the Facebook fascists

Wikipedia,
wiki-answers
Wiki-leaks,
Wiki-dancers
Wiki-wonti
Will he not
Constrict the flow of falsehoods
Help save my plot

I know to much
About so little
The man is winning
At confusing the issue

Misinformation
sleeps with the truth
Conspiracy theory
Burden of proof

Youtube tells me
the government did it
And on another channel
Allah can fix it

Bombs
Guns
Rape
Kittens

I have so much in my head
Yet so much more is written

I know more now
Than can ever be said
And yet I still manage to get the answers wrong
When I'm spaced out watching Eggheads

Bombs, guns, rape, kittens? I saw them at the Blue Room before it closed. Top band.

This poem reads like my evenings. Time to disconnect!
