Profound flashbacks of yesterday
A pompous parade has lost its way
Sheeple in a game of charades
Original ideas often mislaid
Costume masks obscure selfie faces
Perception blurs snapshot places
Festive moments of who’s portrayed
Whilst enjoying their marmalade
A copy/paste as someone else
No face to face with oneself
Those that opt to masquerade
Their alter egos a societal display
