I know cameras are just a tool
Taking photos is their lot
I have the Leica rangefinder blues
Under my collar I'm feeling hot
Some Range Finders cost too much
Some are un-ob-tanium
Why do I want one, what's the fuss?
I think I'm going insane-ium
The evil devil says "go buy"
That you only live just once
I suppose before I die
I'll be that buying dunce
Angel tells me to be good
I already have everything I need
My present camera engine under hood
Has all the strength and speed
My friend Mike commented yesterday about film vs. digital. He’s right, and it made me think of several paradoxes associated with cameras these days.
Don’t suggest to buy an iPhone. NEVER. I did have fun rewriting this.
