My husband bought me a camera
To try to improve on my skills
You see, I am a point and press girl
Nothing fancy, no frills!
This one is rather larger
Than the phone that I normally use
With dials and buttons and lenses
About which I don’t have a clue!
I couldn’t wait to start using it
And snapped at all in my sight
Playing with all of the settings
And fiddling about with the light!
It has its own little knapsack
Where I can pack it away
Jammed in with all its accessories
Zipped up so it will stay
Then I see a bird in the garden
Oh, look at it hopping about
Now his wife’s come to join him
Time for the camera to come out
Because I didn’t want to break it
I eased it out from the case
But, the birds have now scarpered
A photo shoot, gone to waste!
I went to a local beauty spot
Practising shot after shot
Trying out all of the settings
Pleased with the photos I’d got
I went to put them all on computer
And then something went horribly wrong
All of my beautiful pictures
Had just disappeared and had gone!
