Officials at tourist destinations are becoming frustrated with “Selfie” takers endangering themselves and disturbing others with antics to obtain “likes’ on Facebook or Twitter.  It seems many are more interested in self-promotion than in the iconic spots they visit.  Thus, Stonehenge becomes a “selfie” backdrop instead of a fascination ancient mystery to gaze upon, ponder and marvel at.  See also “Selfie,” posted December 20, 2013.

(To the tune of “Moon River,” by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer)

Please” like” me!
I’m so insecure.
Feel desperate to be your
new friend.

I’m boasting
in my posting.
And all of my hopes now
on your “like” depend.

My ego needs a little boost.
On your page can I roost
with you?

My vanity’s bold, to be sure.
One cannot be demure
If “likes” you are to score.
Please “like” me!
Please do!
