Putting The Shark In Selfie Pose


picture this
facebook image
girl being swallowed
by a shark a great white shark

surface breaching
mouth jaws stretching
wide teeth flashing
shark sweet smiling

girl already swallowed
to shoulders arm extended
taking a photograph selfie
arm outstretched concentrating

on posing clicking
caption proclaiming
'WAIT A MINUTE
I NEED TO POST THIS'

reminds me of Julius Caesar
adjusting his toga in modesty
as the knives continued to descend
upon the steps of his assassination
