In social media res
More is often less,
The likes of which don’t even
Scratch a twitch at best.

The hollow hierarchy
Is best from outside.
In mediocrity res
Don’t follow the rest.

“Here’s a way to think about what the masses regard as being ‘good’ things. If you would first start by setting your mind upon things that are unquestionably good–wisdom, self-control, justice, courage–with this preconception you’ll no longer be able to listen to the popular refrain that there are too many good things to experience in a lifetime.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 5.12
