Selfie..An Addiction.. - Poem by abhilasha bhatt

A self sculptured pic of one is selfie
Robert Cornelius the inventer of selfie
An experiment that turned into an addiction is selfie
Nowadays there is a viral of selfie
Everyone anyone anywhere taking selfie
No matter where they are, they are just taking selfie
Top ten buzzwords from some years is selfie
In the space astrounauts are taking selfie
With the shark in the oceano capturing selfie
With their dog and cat people are taking selfie
With the tornado some are taking selfie
Half shaved and bathed taking selfie
In the party making pout taking selfie
Half slept with half opened eyes taking selfie
With the flowing nose taking selfie
With the chicken pox taking selfie
While crying giving a pause capturing selfie
Good for the memories is selfie
Capturing special moment in selfie
Treasure of moments is selfie
Remind the day occasion of some special date and day selfie
In the flood middle of the water with half sinked body taking selfie
After the earthquake with the destroyed buildings people take selfie
In the parliament taking selfie
With the minister in the parliament taking selfie
How they will get the time to work of people they are busy in taking selfie
Like a flue spreaded all over nowadays that's called selfie
Like the weather, like the song, like the dance, like the energy
Like the pollution, like the flue, like the flower, like the bird
Now there are the types of selfie
Every expression is now a kind of selfie
All are eating less just taking selfie and posting selfie
The greatest addition nowadays is of selfie
Selfitis is the term this condition of addiction of selfie
Eat for selfie
Drink for selfie
Song for selfie
Dance for selfie
Everthing is just now a selfie for selfie
The new model of smartphones have the named prefix and suffix with selfie
Not only the youngsters have a craving for selfie
Old the gold are also impressed my selfie
No issue is there taking the selfie
Until anyone becomes addicted for sefie..

Comments about Selfie..An Addiction.. by abhilasha bhatt

    I liked the idea behind your poem, and I am sure you have read either an article or wikipedia to get details about the 'history' of selfie..

    The American Psychiatric Association has indeed not really listed it as a mental disorder though, selfie addiction can be seen rather as one of signs of a person with high narcissm.. The 'selfist' thing was a hoax created by Adobo Chronicles - a satire site that writes 'fake' news! ! !


    Now a few things-

    * The past participle of 'spread' is 'spread'.. It is an irregular verb..

    * In the line-

    'No matters where they are, they are just taking selfie'

    It should be 'no matter', not 'matters'...

    * In the lines -

    'The greatest addition nowadays is of selfie'

    'addition' or 'addiction'? ? ? Both can work, I guess with different meaning to the lines...

    * The lines -

    'The new model of smartphone have the named prefix and suffix with selfie'

    There are a couple of things,

    a) 'smartphone' or 'smartphones'? ? You are talking about all 'smartphones' and not just one, right? ?

    b) It would be better if you used the 'prefix' and 'suffix' as verbs.. So the line should be -

    'The new models of smartphones have the name
    prefixed and suffixed with selfie'

    In my limited knowledge, I feel you should make these essential changes to the poem, to 'fix' it..

    The thought is noble Abhilasha, the execution naïve.. Fix the execution and you have a wonderful poet, even in English, within you: -)
