SMARTPHONES....OBSESSED WITH TAKING SELFIES

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Aug 18, 2017

Where have all those photos
gone,
Of trips to foreign places?
It's just an overload
Of happy snappers' faces.

And now it's all done
instantly,
All sent across the Cyber,
No one want to show 
Ayers Rock,
Or the beauty of the 
Khyber.

Apparently, all we want 
to see,
Is another picture of
you.
In case you've changed
substantially,
Since the ten you took
at two!

And, really? All those
posing snaps - 
D'you think you're 
someone famous?
It's all got quite
embarrassing,
And some of them
just shame us.

Those fluttering eyes
and pouting lips - 
We've seen it all before.
And a thousand pictures
of just your face,
Has become a bloody
bore!

So show us all the 
landmarks,
Of your holiday or your
hike,
Instead of just your
silly face,
And then I might press
'like'!
