The Selfie

We’re in an age of the selfie,

not quite the age of past Delphi

No great oracle here to know,

just gratification of ego


Portrayal of ourselves online,

our insecurities a sign

of what we’re not, not we are,

an individual, not a star


Are our personas so shallow

our identities so callow ?

Can we not revel in ourselves

rather to insecure depths delve?


Phones on sticks to enhance angle,

thus each self we do entangle

Look into a mirror instead,

Stop, reflect, character embed
