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 !
