Narcissus’ #selfie

Narcissus, handsome as he were

so attractive, named after him are flow’rs 

posted an instagram selfie, did he

waiting for his followers’ attention, though fleeting

poor Narcissus: the ‘likes’ donned upon him

did not match his expectations 

and so away Narcissus pined-

his worth so heavily defined 

by the approval his followers declined
