Marketing Ruins Everything

I stumbled upon Facebook, and
I saw waters well-chartered:
That marketing ruins everything
That’s not meant to be bartered

I do not care “what happens next”
Or sure ways to some prize;
Or to see baldly there displayed
How myths are made from lies

And something that’s meant both to be
Both personal and true:
Becomes another cursèd tool
To afflict me
And you
