Camera Shy


Camera Shy

I'm so upset -
I'm mortified.
I need a real cool
place to hide.

I never will
let one soul see
this ugly, gross
picture of me.

I can't believe
I looked like that
for ever just
one second flat.

My face looks squished.
My nose looks pug.
And my left eyeball
looks like a bug!

This photograph
must disappear.
I'd die if my friends
saw it here. is talking
to my dad,
I think things might not
be so bad.

I think she's solved
my problem, yup!
She said she's gonna
blow it up!
