The Willies

at a lectern
in cap and gown
poised
with self-importance
and mawkish grin
an avatar
of five 8
stands tall

surrounded
by a phalanx
of sentries
blurring
in and out
waving halberds

to flurries
of wild applause
one by one
a new generation
of internet troll
graduates
rise from their seats
and bow

fist assignment:
sift thru email
alter photos
and twist your words
to suit theirs

anyone
with one iota
of privacy concerns
ought to get the willies

ready or not
here they come
