Zero tolerance for sexism,
Zero tolerance for hate,
Zero tolerance for racism,
Zero tolerance for homophobes, for transphobes, for religiophobes and those who kill in religion’s name,
Zero tolerance for all whose views aren’t exactly the same
No room for questions,
No room for debate,
No room for dissent,
No room for conflict, challenge, or reason
Do not ask us why we are right, that should be self-evident,
If you don’t understand, then you don’t understand the question
For we are the "Twitterati", secure in our high castles
Of self-satisfied judgment
That we rain down with pitiless scorn,
We don’t need to learn, we know without study
We don’t need to listen; we have ‘soooo’ much empathy,
Our judgments can’t be questioned; there is no room for appeal,
But there is no need to refer us, we are certain in our summaries
We are liberal, we are left-wing, we work for the public good
Get behind us and we’ll raise you high
But, do not question us, do not challenge us
Do ask our authority
Or, we may decide that it’s you we need to see
