via Daily Prompt: Privacy

Tags, handles, usernames,

We have them all.

Text messages, emails, and video-chats,

We dare not risk disconnection.

Flooded with news,

Real vs Fake.

Sharing secretly captured screenshots and murky far away photographs,

We’re flooded with images we never needed to see.

The World Wide Web makes the world a smaller place.

But is it safe to brush off


So easily?
