Funny Poems

A witch sat in a photo booth -

     An ugly hag was she!

She tried to make herself look nice -

    Well, just like you or me.

 

She twirled around upon the seat

    And even forced a smile - - -

And then she cast a magic spell

    To make her looks worthwhile.

 

She held onto her witch’s hat;

    Gave the machine a kick,

And, grinning as she looked ahead,

    She heard a tiny click.

A gurgling, churning, rumbling sound

    Arose from deep inside.

The witch believed that she’d look good

    And felt a sense of pride.

 

Her photograph she felt quite sure

    Would truly represent

The lovely lady that she was

    With no cause for lament.

 

There came a loud chug-chugging sound

    And out the photo came,

But the look upon the witch’s face

    Was one of heartfelt shame.

 

The ugly face that she beheld

    Brought tears into her eyes,

But she, like others, faced the truth:

       CAMERAS NEVER LIE.
