Poefusion Friday Poem

Poefusion Friday 5 challenges us with the following words:



As if We Cared

thoughtless celeb
clad in exiguous clothing
is scarcely gifted

confirmed imperfect
even with a waterfall
of burnished hair

carps to newscaster
about clicking cameras
as if we cared


Fractal created in Apophysis by Sue.

Society has been so conditioned to these celebrities having their picture taken that we've come to expect it at a cost to their privacy. And though I don't think its right for them to have their privacy taken away like that I do think sometimes they forget they chose this lifestyle and what it brings. I'm just glad it isn't me balancing out which pictures can and can't be used. Nice job. Have a nice day.

I love this- it's so powerful, especially the last line which speaks volumes to me.

Very cleverly done. I'm so glad I came by again today.

bella :)

it's so true but then again we do judge too easily but they did choose this lifestyle, didn't they?

Jo said...

great final stanza....yes as if we care.

it is a painful thought that freedom is so fleeting and costly.. and that fractal is a beautiful shell reflecting the sea...
