- Where Are My Glasses? : : Humour

Poem by Alessandra Liverani

Where are my glasses, where did they go?
I’ve searched high, and I’ve searched low
I looked on the shelf and behind the TV
Where, oh where can my glasses be?

I’ve looked on top of the table, behind the door
Inside the cupboard and inside the drawer
Beside the lounge and under it too
I went outside and checked inside an old shoe

I walked down the hallway and up the stairs
In front of me was a bicycle lying right there
I walked around it and jumped over the toys
Left there by those most lazy of boys

I walked past a doorway, then crawled through a hole
Which led to a cupboard that only contained bowls
I’ve looked everywhere, under each and every bed
The only place I forgot was on top of my head

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)

    Thanks very much Daniel. A few years after I wrote that poem, my ex-partner yelled out to me from another room Have you seen my glasses? . I yelled back No I haven't. I turned to a friend sitting next to me and said I wrote a poem about that. My ex-partner heard me and said Oh you and your bloody poems. Then 5 seconds later I hear Oh, that's where they are.
