Selfie selfie selfie!
Sects sects sects!
sex sex sex!
Show and tell
Anything and everything are game
Everyone wants to have a say
Not enough to be heard
but also to be seen
It used to be 'have gun will travel'
Now it is the other way around
It is go 'travel and have a selfie'
Next minute splash it on FB
It is for the whole world to see!
We used to rightly call it 'self portrait'
Elegantly done with a reflect camera
Not even a modern day compact
With the flash gun at the ready
It was an 'ancient' selfie
Silently done but appreciated gratefully
No one cared and no one bothered
It was to be shown only
to family and friends
Taken with finesse
and proudly passed around
Why a selfie on FB?
One followed by another by the day
To show how one had aged gracefully?
Ok no talking of selfie!
Neither about 'sects' inviting controversy
Nor of sex best discussed privately
Care for a time-out?
