Mona gave the word for all to HEAR!
Hear YE! Hear YE!
Friends, Romans, Countrymen,
Lend me your ears!
(they've got to be better than mine!)
Do your ears hang low do they....
Listen up! Ecoutez!
Hear me out....
Do you hear what I hear?
A startling cry pierced my ears....
or was that the jeweller in the mall?
"Speak up, don't you mumble...."
(James Taylor said it best.)
Damned hearing aids get tangled in my hair
trying to tear them out too quickly
as the jet's engines
roar to life down the runway
and no one warned me!
Why, yesterday, it was only a mere robin
in that distant tree
that was annoying me,
assaulting my sensitized ear drums
with his grating chirp!
Gotta get the set volume turned down on these babies...
But that does seem rather redundant,
Ears to ya!
Mother of Invention, who will never quite get used to wearing the cursed things!
