Two Questions Posed to My Digital Self

How apt the simulation feels
Offered by the digital world

Even in primitive games
Like Sonic and Sim City
(to say nothing of Facebook
And LinkedIn)
The cardinal challenge
A player faces is
The familiar speed up
That confronts us 
Across all platforms
Stressed to the max
By the demands of our
Multiple screen names

Yet still I seek relief
Through more tweets and online poems
Thereby casting myself that much
Deeper down simulation’s hole

How many followers
Do you suppose
One must acquire
Before simulation
Yields to the real
Or would it be better
To forego more tweets
Pending the release of
Digital ego Version 2.0
