Shall I compare thee to a summer’s selfie?

Thou art more favored and more filtered:

Retweets do share the darling posts of May,

And Facebook’s recents hath all too short a date;

Sometime too pixel’d the filter of Instagram shines,

And often is his grainy complexion dimm’d;

And every Mayfair on Mayfair sometime degrades,

By chance or selfie’s changing resolution uncrop’d;

But thy eternal Avi shall not fade,

Nor deactivating that account thou ow’st;

Nor shall h8ters’ @’s thou troll’st in his comments,

When in eternal emojis to time thou Like’st:

So long as phones can scroll or connect Wi-Fi ,

So long lives this, and this gives life to selfie.
