Ah, Photography !

by Colly

Can a photo be so ugly

as to capture the blood

and tears of man…?

Wretched life, this some have.

Photography !

Their pain depicted in frame

now your pain of indignation,

or disbelief…

Could it be we just need relief…

Thus, there no need to grieve…

I’d rather see something pretty;

something beholden of spring…

I’d rather look upon poppies,

delicate, pink poppies, flourishing.

Recalling their scent just by

gazing at them…

This bouquet would be a

pleasant offering, I’d say.

But just as the flower’s

will not last…

some pictures only offer aghast.

Photography !
