Word of the Day: Doomscrolling

Doomscrolling (or doomsurfing) is the act of consuming an endless procession of negative online news, to the detriment of the scroller’s mental wellness.

My hobby is Doomscrolling and

I like it Very Well.

I check the Web incessantly

to see what’s Going to Hell.

There’s always some New Awful

to make up the daily news.

There’s always some Big Problem

that will addle and confuse.

“They” say that it’s unhealthy,

that it makes your mind get sick–

just looking for some direful thing—

There’s Plenty…. Take Your Pick!

But, I have this Web Connection and

I use it constantly.

I look for all the Gloom and Doom

that’s on its way to me.
