Sit still and smile

Sit still little man
And smile nicely
Try to look happy
What a nice family

It's only a camera
It won't do you any harm
A minute without moving
Captures you in all your charm

I know this is strange
You don't know what's going on
But the result will be worth it
For generations going on


Inspired by and linked up at sepia Saturday.

indeed, but at least it's not something that will physically hurt the poor boy

Emma Major said...

you've got me thinking about another stanza now Bob.

many years from now
your photo will be seen
and people will imagine
who you are and where you've been.

A minute without moving is almost a lifetime for a child.

that little boy does look really scared. His eyes are almost popping out of his head. I can see why that inspired your creative poem.
