We're Doomed”

John Adams Middle School
Bernalillo County, New Mexico

I'll be honest,
this generation is doomed.
Brainwashed by social media,
what even is an encyclopedia?

1k followers, 500 likes.
Selfie after selfie,
Okay, we get it, you're pretty.

But you must have
some pity.
We were once normal,
but Apple made a new iPhone.

“Hanging out” is pretty much
selfie sprees
and snapchat stories.

Bullying had changed from
wedgies and stealing lunch money
to Facebook exploitation and
Instagram hate pages.

But you never know.
Maybe we'll come out
of our Wi-Fi high.
Become normal,
functioning humans.

Well, come on, at least
have some hope.
