It used to be
a photograph wasn’t free
and the method was surrounded by mystery.

But then Kodak said
just press a button,
we will do the rest
making your photos look their best.

And Land tried his hand
making the Polaroid cam
which many found hard
to avoid.

But it was the computer mob
that did the job,
with its electrons
the camera maker dons.

Now they’re in every device
like an infestation of lice,

Everyone is a Photographer Now.
