There’s no rest for the stupid

We all know that trolls don’t sleep

They’ve got memes to remember

And innuendos to retweet


So what’s a good soul to do

When their echo chamber’s on the fritz?

What other options exist

When the matrix starts to glitch?


Unfriend -- Your high school prom date

Unfriend -- Your college roommate

Unfriend -- Your second cousin once removed

Unfriend -- Your great aunt Lizzie

Unfriend -- That guy in IT

Unfriend -- Your bunkmate from camp, summer ‘92


What happened to all of the silly pictures?

What happened to the mindless chit chat?

I never thought thought the day would come

When I’d dearly miss that grumpy cat


You can try to reason and sway

To bring them to your point of view

You’ll only make yourself angry

Then there’s only one thing left to do


Unfriend -- Your next door neighbor

Unfriend -- Your fraternity brother

Unfriend -- That girl in HR who caught your eye

Unfriend -- Your uncle Spencer

Unfriend -- Your guidance counselor

Unfriend -- The entire state of Florida


That woman you once shared an office with

Way back in 2002

Never seemed this bat shit crazy

When all she posted, yes all she posted,  was pictures, yes, pictures of her food


Unfriend -- your mom’s new boyfriend

Unfriend -- his heavy metal band

Unfriend -- That washed-up actor from Charles in Charge

Unfriend -- It’s the change you’ve been needing

Unfriend -- Time for some housecleaning

Unfriend -- with a streamlined friend list, you’re livin’ large...
