Pictures You're Accidentally In

mister background boy
watch out because you'll still be tagged
because everyone has a means to camera phone
and a motive to snap snap snap away

look like you're not looking
look away or look toward the camera
doesn't matter anymore anyway
because you're an Instagram intrigue
and you'll be uploaded either way

these are the pictures you're accidentally in
from selfies to photobombs
this Vine of Tumblr photo identification
in all those security camera photos
from the Frosted Flakes you bought
or your last TSA-tripping visit to the folks in Missouri

you say you're not good in photos
you don't want your picture taken
but there are more charged coupler devices
than moments in your block/untag/remove/flag world

you've got no reasonable expectation
of privacy in your privvy
you can hire a fancy lawyer
but he'll just tell you that you're silly

so you'd better get used to all
these pictures you're accidentally in
because they aren't going away
they've been uploaded to the cloud
and it's going to stay that way
