Tartarus V.2.0.18.

Sisyphus is texting but he’s always left on read
And though his phone is charging the battery’s almost dead
Through all the tweets he’s tweeted, of likes he’s gathered none
He longs to push the boulder though that pain is old and done

The blazing wheel binds Ixion, whose lust is his own trap
And weary of the spinning he’s now on a dating app
Though his fingers yearn the left, a rightward choice he must
Of matches still he is bereft and thoroughly nonplussed

The Danaides are posting pics, fifteen times per hour
With dating tips and wedding looks, all well within their power
But they have only one follower and his comments are the worst
And as we all know well,  Tantalus cannot quench his thirst
