Poetic Thursday: Those Eyes

It’s Thursday again, which means poetry with our friend, Pam, and her kitties Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats.

They provided us with this photo for this week’s inspiration:

This one struck home with me. Motor Man has always said that I could cut a steel beam in half with my eyes at 20 feet away. And the last line of my poem is a direct quote that I heard my Mom say many times. I guess I have something in common with that little guy in today’s photo.

Here’s my poem:

Those Eyes
I just can’t help it, and I’ve really tried
to break this bad habit of cutting my eyes.

Many times my sister is the one
I look at this way because of something she’s done.

And when my teacher looks the other way,
my eyes do the talking;  I’ve nothing to say.

But it doesn’t work with my mom, you see,
she just says: “Don’t you cut those eyes at me”.
