Wearing Glasses Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

Wearing Glasses

Rating: 5.0

I don't think I need my glasses
Though, I am often reminded to put them on
One day, I didn't wear them for most of that day
And didn't feel a thing
But my sister bullies me to put them on
Sometimes, I forget to clean them
And I get so frustrated, I take them off
Then, I get a headache and clean them
I wonder if Dorothy Parker had to wear them
Would she have the same predicament?

On the lighter side Dorothy Parker won't be able to see with your glasses, she may have different numbers...Kidding, Nice poem.

Probably! You sound like her in this poem which is absolutely adorable and I think Dorothy may have approve and liked it almost as much as I did.

Good point, only observational objectivity will get affected without glasses, though creativity will remain.5*****

Very interesting! The last two lines are punch lines that take the reader by surprise. Wearing glasses all the time can be really irksome.

I don't wear my glasses either, unless I am driving. I have found it difficult to write or type with my glasses on, though my sight is poor and everything looks blurred. Nice poem…

Most of us will need glasses at some point when we age. But some factors speed up the timeline wherein we need corrective lenses especially when we spend a lot of time reading and writing. An amusing write that most of us could relate.Loved it.
