Leech

“Please check your DMs.” Always the comments 
“I’m an influencer.” Purchased followers if your honest
Selling a fake following making money off desperation
Artists with a unique voice give into temptation
“Book review and promotion” just a few bucks more
As you leech off their cultivated creative stores
I’ve wanted the big accounts to feature me
Wanted book reviews, follows,and live reading streams
Creatives want a loud voice; to be heard
That always brings the leeches who self-serve
Co-opting someone’s art to line their pockets
Let’s hope the leeches don’t drain souls from good artists
