We Know Best…

'We Know Best...' Luca M Damiani - Kiss and Arrow 2024 - www.lucadamiani-art.com
Tender morning
with singing birds,
we gently walk
towards the desk.
And there you go
it starts again,
social media shouts
once more.
X,
TikTok
and Meta
warriors.
“MAs” + “PhDs”
based on posts
re-tweeted
from wherever.
It is just
the way it is,
we like to think:
“we are the saviours”.
We like to shout
“western colonisers”,
from our
western keyboards.
We like to think
that we clearly know
the only and
holy truth.
A truth that is
somehow repeated
and repeated (and repeated and repeated and repeated and repeated)
like very loud parrots.
And all because
we think
we Know
best.
