Back in the day when the camera was new
people were thrilled with what they could do

To take a moment in time and save it forever
A completely marvelous thing to do –however

What moment in time should one chose to save
how many moments in time can one truly crave

some would save every moment if they could
if it didn’t cost so much or take all day they would

can’t save them all you can only save some
now the question of course is save which one

should it be- tell the truth 
this one? the girl in big yellow hat.
or this one? with the fat crazy cat.

under compulsion you just never know 
no big deal though it’s all just for show
