What I do not get is,
People read something online.
Some read it and are happy,
Some read it and are mad,
But they share,
To their friends,
To their family,
To their coworkers.
Bosses even.

They share like it is a fact,
They add what they feel,
You read what they type,
You can,
Smell the hate,
Taste the joy.
Hear their boos,
Hear their cheers.

They share the most preposterous webpages,
From shady sites,
Unheard of.

Then they go out and spew these articles,
Verbatim, as they are facts to be believed.
The ones who know the answer,
Or smell the falseness,
Do not want to correct their friend,
Family member.
So they let them carry on.

Some do not question these facts,
They just passionately believe.
On the brink of fighting over it.
The article was fake,
Or skewed.
To get that reaction out of you.
You have been played.
You walk around saying you are intelligent,
But do not realize you look like a joke.

We live in a world with an abundance of information,
So if you take one thing away,
From my writing today.

Think before you share,
If you are not sure.
If this article or this post,
Is really true.
Take 2 minutes,
Search away,
Find out if that thing really happened today.
Share what is true,
Move on if its fake.
Me? You do not need to thank,
Just do this for your own sake.
