Selfie (a sonnet)

Standard

With the great interest in taking selfies at the moment, I thought I’d write a sonnet about them:

SELFIE: A SONNET

I thought that I’d take a photo of myself
As ‘selfie’ is the most popular new word,
So I asked my daughter to provide some help,
For my snap might turn out quite absurd.
“Place the phone in front of you just like this,
See Dad, it is so such a piece of cake,
Now smile and click, you can hardly miss,
You’ll find a selfie is so easy to take!”

Now here I am in front of the Eiffel Tower,
I’d like to be seen with the Tower I confess,
So now is the hour, there is no time to cower,
I turn the phone to me and button I did press.

But a first look at the pic has made me so glum
As the only thing I see of ‘self’ is my big thumb.
