The bird won't wait!
Your fumbling hands stand no match
Against my lens cap
Drop it to the watery depths
Good, be rid of it!
Go through ceremonious steps
To catch the bird in flight
If only you could catch the light just right!
I laugh as you press the shutter too soon
Leaving images like blurred cartoons
Four hundred dollars
Are you not impressed?
Don't you enjoy this good jest?
Of exposure battles and focus raising hackles
Don't you like a good joke?
Because a comedian
Yes that's the type of folk
I want to be
Is just not who I was meant to be
