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

and earrings,

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,

doncha think?!!

Ears to ya!

Mother of Invention, who will never quite get used to wearing the cursed things!

Consider "that little thing" the same way as glasses.
You have are your senses working and you can enjoy to hear and see the best of the nature, which you so much love.

Ah … wonderful series of familiar associations to this prompt! Love the reference to James Taylor … the way the robin led you on … and the ‘Ears to ya! Sorry you’re having trouble with the hearing aids.
Hugs and blessings,

collected the cassette tapes we were supposed to be making in french, mine said
"Bonjour, Mr. Phelps, your mission , if you decide to accept it....blah blah blah...this tape will self destruct in five seconds."

I got in trouble for that!

I cleaned out the tubes in a three-year-olds hearing aids a few days ago - sand and ear wax are not a good mix!

MOI, I'm happy to see another poem and this one speaks loud and clear. I hope that getting used to the hearing aid will get easier and less frustrating for you. Poetry Saturday sounds like a neat idea, was sure missing your poetry on Friday.

Great poem. I have hearing aids, and I have NEVER gotten used to them. I'm sorry I'm late getting by here.
