Just curious. How much time would you spend in conversation with this lady? Is there something about her that bothers you, makes you uncomfortable? Please tell me I am not the only one.
I don’t watch The View on ABC on a regular basis, but now and then I turn it on to see what they’re talking about. I do enjoy talk when it’s interesting. I often don’t agree with some of their talk, but that stimulates me to discern what I’d like them to say.
But when I do watch I almost have to look away and just listen. There is something so put-offing when one covers her eye and another keeps uncovering her eye. I know if I were on that show the producer would say, “Mrs. Markland . . please put your hand down, or Mrs. Markland, for God’s sake get your hair out of your face.”
So today I wrote a poem. Okay . . you’re saying “There she goes again.”
I made a phone call to find the exact address, and before the day is over I may actually send the poem to The View. Do you suppose they will read it? Will understand it? Let me know what you think.
Seeing Eye to I
I seldom watch the morning View
I’d like to tell you why . .
I cannot watch without the
thought that something’s
in my eye.
I can’t believe the sentiments
of those who hide their face
or those whose hand moves
constantly to whisk hair
back in place.
But even worse is one who combs
then lets her dark locks lie
across her face to keep herself
from seeing eye-to-eye.
I know I’m getting personal
But that’s what you do too
Whenever I allow my set
To open to the View.
And, honestly, I can’t believe
Your thoughts are meant for me.
When you do things to block the view
How do you think I’ll see?
