The “Selfie”

Smile and say cheese
The selfie is out
The word that says “me”
“Look here and watch out”
The image that’s taken
By the subject themselves
That hides not from the camera
Nor sits on the shelves

But is your selfie an echo
Of just who your are
Or a statement of ego
A glimpse of your bra
A pout that says duck face
Or am image that states
To be honest I think
That I’m really first rate

Or perhaps it’s just this
A nice pic saying “hi”
Your own personal journey
With a selfie more shy
But whatever it is
It is here now to stay
As the new word on the street
Spells out “selfie” today
