roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you


when we are gone,
the corporate-owned neural networks trained on our social media posts,
to advertise to us, to surveill us,
will be the most complete backup of our personalities available,
despite being worn down and filtered for those purposes,
and relegated to cold, inexpensive storage in backups,
being that we won't be viewing ads again any time soon to pay the rent.

i can't believe mc frontalot made a song about online dating with this theme
