The Selfie Generation…
Sexy selfies all over the place
Pouting lips on bland make-up-masked face
Though girls think they look great
Images they create
Shouldn’t represent our human race…
On National Limerick Day I thought I might try to put the tongue-in-cheekness of the form to good use by making some potentially contraversial social commentary.
I do appreciate that as a middle-aged self-confessed grumpy old woman I may be missing something important in what appears to me to be the constant sexual self-objectification of young girls on their own social media platforms, but like the point made in the movie ‘Mona Lisa Smile’ about how women were depicted in the media during the fifties I often wonder what future generations will make of the apparent popularity of this hopefully-soon-to-pass photographic fad… 🙂
