My Gramma Got a Camera
My gramma got a camera
from my grampa as a gift.
She started snapping pictures.
She was speedy. She was swift.
She posted loads of photos,
sharing lots of shots online,
and got a zillion likes for her
expression and design.
She started taking selfies
and recording videos,
which gained her lots of followers
since she was good at those.
Some days she’ll post a portrait,
or a landscape panorama.
And now you know the reason why
I call her Instagramma.
