Selfish “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt”

What could we write after the limerick challenge?
Something that could be funny. Something that is kind of up-to-date.
Something else or other…

The Selfie-Stick phenomenon

Well, last year in November I went to London to meet a friend of mine. I have not seen for ages. We walked around the city and saw a phenomenon that I thought might be hyped a little on media. However, it wasn’t.
I’m talking about selfie sticks. Those things you can stick your camera onto and then take a selfie with your friends. Unfortunately, persons who afford to have one of those are not too considerate of other people. I have to admit I exaggerate a little here. Most of them were quite friendly and took them away when you came along. Quite a lot, though didn’t.
Walking over Westminster Bridge was like running the gauntlet because you had selfie sticks stick in your face, side, bottom… you get the gist. I am a firm believer in making a bad experience into a good one, and so I decided to suggest a selfie poem this week.

Artists do Self-Portraits, why not poets?

Many painters do self-portraits. For whatever reason. So why shouldn’t poets do a poetic self-portrait or selfie how it is called today? Well, there is no way out here on “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt” as I suggest for this week’s prompt:
“Write a Selfie Poem.”
