I’m too old to get the whole ‘selfie’ thing

And that’s ok, so are the selfies; (ok, I mean)

But, Auschwitz, Grenfell…

Why take a selfie at a mass grave?

 

What is it with the new breed of tourists?

Mass graves; needing to watch people starve;

Needing to see the misery and suffering,

Up close.

 

For entertainment. Recreation. Humour.

My only criticism of Obama is that selfie;

Him and david cameron at Mandela’s funeral;

What the hell happened to respect?

 

What the hell happened to reaching out and helping?

Tell you what, I hope you don’t mind;

While you lie there bleeding…. dying…..

You won’t mind if I take a selfie will you?

 

BIG SMILE
