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

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
