Eye Witness*

They also serve who only stand and film,
Capturing human behaviour across the realm
Mindful that  possible fame may result
-Or is that, perhaps, unwarranted insult
Given the modern capacity
For filmic perspicacity…?
Mobile phones, a social scourge
Publicising our every urge,
The prospect of just five minutes of fame
The heart of this self-motivating game.
And yet, the irony can’t be ignored
That even acts universally abhorred
Are indexed for posterity.
This, our national social history.
